Nicko’s friends in Australia have set up a new Facebook page: . It has details of his Memorial Service in Melbourne which will be held at Xavier College on Friday, 16 May at 3pm.

Hello All!

We are having Shiells’ Memorial Service at the Xavier Chapel on Friday May 16th at 3pm.

We will then trot down to the Nevermind Bar to regale each other in stories of his best and worst times, marvel at his rapier wit, be astonished by his pit bull drive and wonder in amazement at how such a fine specimen could have walked amongst us!

Truly one of God’s great prototypes not meant for mass production.

We will all miss you dearly and it will be good to say our goodbyes. But remember: you will never be gone from our hearts and our thoughts!

To Nicholas Shiells!
