Bosco was the most inspirational rugby coach I ever had. He ran us up castleknock hill RELENTLESSLY. He pushed us to the limit in the most encouraging way. He moulded boys into strong balanced men.
Choosing Bosco Was the best decision that castleknock college ever made.
I have no doubt he was as good a father.
Thank you for sharing him with us.

When I joined Terenure RFC in 1999 Bosco went out of his way to make me feel welcome. He always greeted me with a smile, an arm around the shoulder and a ‘how are you pal?’ (that I always felt he meant). He was so supportive of the team, regardless of the result.

I have not been down to the club as much as I would have liked over the last few years, but when I have, I always enjoyed the same welcome from Bosco.

He has a special place in my memory as a friendly, supportive face when I joined a club as a bit of an outsider. Thank you Bosco and thank you to his family for sharing him with all of us! Take care old pal!

— Richie Governey
Rest in eternal peace Bosco -

Rest In Peace Bosco a Terenure Rugby Club legend and gentleman. I always enjoyed our chats in the clubhouse after games. A terrific man with a great sense of humour who will be sadly missed.
— Thomas Lyster
Since our paths first crossed in 1975 as captains of our respective clubs, we had several ‘humdingers’ of meetings, on and off the field of play, always memorable, and always the very best of craic.

Regrettably these meetings were way too infrequent in recent years due to the divergent fortunes of our clubs, but the enjoyment, if anything, was enhanced whenever we did.

One of life’s great characters who gave so much to others, without even realising it, and to whom we should all be grateful.

Sincere condolences to Thomas, Gerard, and all the family, and to his colleagues in TCRFC.

‘The richer for your presence, the poorer for your passing; mile buiochas, Bosco.
— Jim Glennon, Skerries RFC

Sincere condolences to all the Morrissey family, especially Stephen & Rob, Thomas, Martina and Gerald. I shared my rugby life with Bosco on and off the pitch for the past 50 years. A unique personality who welcomed strangers like friends and friends with the familiar greeting "Howya Scout?"

Bosco made a unique contribution to life in Terenure, in the Club and the broader Community. We will miss him, but never forget him.

Rest in peace Scout!

Ah my friend Bosco, gone to our maker. I knew you would get there first because you were always first. Every time we played against each other we had such craic. You see, you were born 4 yards offside, even the midwife missed you. I used to shout,”you’re bloody offside pal” and you were quickly back with “excuse me, I am most certainly not”. And I’d say, “then why the hell are you standing beside me when the ball hasn’t come out yet”? Terenure has lost a legend of the club. Bosco will be so greatly missed at the club that he gave his life to.
Our condolences go to his family at this most sad time.
He was a far better player than he realised himself. He was so full of fun. A man on the rugby field. And a total and loved gentleman off the field.
Love. Mick & Liz Quinn (Lansdowne)
— Mick Quinn

On behalf of all the SoftCo staff who dealt with Bosco every Tuesday and Friday on his deliveries we would like to offer our sincere condolences to Bosco's Family on his sad passing.
We all have fond memories of Bosco rocking up on a Friday afternoon with bags of jellies to help us get through the 3 o clock slump and we could look forward to the weekend on a sugar high. He always had time for anyone who wanted to stop and have a chat and he kept us up to date with the daily news, sometimes he would park up and read the paper in our carpark before he set off home.
We are so sorry for your loss.
RIP Bosco we are going to miss you very much.
— Bernadette Martin (SoftCo)

Condolences to all the Morrissey family in the loss of BOSCO, an unforgettable person. I’m not aware of any Terenure man who put so much into being a Terenure man. Back when we could not afford staff BOSCO was always available to serve pints and lock up the premises, sometimes quite late. Nice touch to see condolences from members of other clubs including his great adversary in Landsdowne Basher (Paddy) Boylan. Their rivalry on and off the pitch was a side show in itself. Safe Home Bosco. Peter and Margaret
— Peter Hegarty
