Two men have been charged with murder following Mr Walsh’s death.

Here are some of the tributes sent to the Journal this week:

“It is sad in today’s world when some people’s values towards fellow human beings is so shockingly poor. We should be looking after each other in the community and not undertaking senseless and shameful acts.

“It is though very heartening to see the wonderful community spirit of the Harrowby residents uniting to support Danny’s family and friends. I offer my sincere condolences and support to all Danny Walsh’s family and friends.”

Danny Walsh, a bubbly personality, was well liked, well known by many people in this town.

God bless. Thoughts are with your family. Rip Danny x x

------------------------------------------

I was a teaching assistant and the first aider at St Wulfram’s High School when Danny was a pupil there. He was one of my regular “customers”, his injuries usually self inflicted.

He played football with my son Daniel. Even after 14 years, he would still stop and speak.

I remember him fondly and always will do. Please pass my condolences to his parents and sister, Hayley.

With sadness,

Linda Page

What is this town coming too? Danny’s family and friends’ lives will never be the same again, I hope that justice is done and the police and courts don’t let Danny’s family and friends down,

R.I.P Danny, my thoughts are with you all. xxxx
