On August 16th, 2023 our beloved friend Martin Healy died suddenly at 38 years old.

Martin is survived by his wife, Colleen, and their three young children ages 9, 7 and 3. Martin was a proud and adoring father and family man, who loved watching his kids grow and succeed in school and in their many activities including Irish dance, ice-hockey, and Gaelic football.

Martin was born and raised in Oughterard, Co. Galway, Ireland. He was an accomplished athlete and won the All Ireland Boxing Title at the age of 14. Martin learned the plastering trade and moved to Chicago in 2011.

Martin was soon an integral part of the Irish-Chicago community. He was a member of John McBride's Gaelic Football Club, a great follower of boxing who frequented the Brooks Park Boxing Program and was a horse racing enthusiast.

Martin founded a successful plastering business and was a steadfast supporter of countless community fundraising causes. His infectious laugh, unwavering kindness and support for his family and friends will be missed by all who knew him.

In the wake of Martin’s passing, we have established The Healy Family Fundraiser to support Colleen and their children during this difficult time. All proceeds will be used to cover future education expenses for the Healy children.

The main event will take place on June 23, 2024, from 3:00 PM to 9:00 PM at the Irish American Heritage Center, 4626 N Knox, Chicago, IL 60630.

Your support, in any form, will be deeply appreciated.
