Cllr Timmons says ‘’ I was saddened to learn of the death of Jamsie Hempsey, I knew Jamsie as a neighbour for many years and as chair of the Clondalkin Patricks day committee. He was delighted that the parade returned to Clondalkin and spent weeks sorting out his costume and shining his bike for the parade , I Gave Jamsie a framed picture of his part in Clondalkin Parade in 2016 which he treasured -The Clondalkin Patricks day parade won’t be the same without him. He was a legend around Clondalkin. As a neighbour of his he will be sadly missed around Cherrywood , he was a character and you never knew what he would be wearing when he came out of his house , he was quite simply Jamsie the Legend of Clondalkin ’’
