Rags Murtagh - Service

Rags Murtagh, a beloved father, son, brother, and friend, has passed away on Tuesday, August 29th. 

We are all deeply saddened by his unexpected passing and are so grateful for all the shared memories, pictures, videos, and love of Rags. 

This page is to cover the costs of his Celebration Of Life Service, to fly his daughter from New York down to attend the service,  and to start the Rags Murtagh Scholarship for students studying and pursuing music degrees.

If you are able to donate, anything will help.  We are extremely grateful that our father had such a large community of kind, talented, and wonderful friends. 

Thank you for all your support.
