Burke O'Rourke, RIP

It is with sadness that I bring you news of the Passing of one of Houston's Irish Legends, Burke O'Rourke, early this morning. 

Burke was a member of the Ancient Order of Hibernians since the 60's and a lifetime member of The Irish Society. 

He is survived by his wife Ann, of 59 years. Funeral details will be forthcoming as they become available. 

This photo was taken last Sunday at the Irish Society Bloomsday event, with his son Joe, a Irish Society Board member, as they enjoyed some Irish soda bread along with live music and dancers.
