Timothy A. Hourihan, 64, of Mount Pleasant, SC and a longtime resident of Red Hook, NY passed away on Sunday, April 18, 2021. 


Born on May 10th, 1956, in Innishannon, County Cork, Ireland, he was the son of the late John and Theresa (Walsh) Hourihan.  Tim married Irene Castle on July 20th, 1980 in Riverdale NY and she survives at home.


Tim had an entrepreneurial spirit in him from the young age of 18, owning pubs in County Cork before immigrating to America with his wife Renee. He continued that spirit in New York and developed Creative Homes in Red Hook, NY.


Tim always had a love of sports, winning the first Gaelic football county championship for the Valley Rovers of Innishannon as a young man, going on to coach his sons’ soccer teams and became an avid golfer. He was a longtime member of the Red Hook Golf Club where he met many of his lifelong friends. Tim along with his brother Sean, were the founders of the Hourihan Challenge Cup, a golf event established over 20 years ago and still competing today – pitting members of the Red Hook Golf Club against a golf society based in County Cork, Ireland.


Having lived in America for half of his life, he never forgot his Irish heritage, sending his daughters to Irish Step Dancing, hosting his annual St Patrick’s Day Party, and sharing stories of his time growing up in Ireland.


In addition to his loving wife Irene “Renee”, he is survived by his children, Cristan (Michael) Lawrie of Mount Pleasant, SC, Gillian (Jack) Hourihan- Stenner of Mount Pleasant , SC,  TJ (Rachel) Hourihan of Mount Pleasant, SC,  and Kevin (Kelli) Hourihan of Southbury, CT; his siblings,  Eleanor McGrath of Coxsackie, NY, Noreen (Teddy) Fitzgerald of Sun City, FL, Mary " Mona" (Paul) Reamer of Sun City, FL, Patjoe (Rose) Hourihane of London, England, Rose (Dennis) Carroll of Kinsale, Ireland and Sean (Betty) Hourihane of Douglas, Ireland; his loving grandchildren, Patrick Lawrie, Ciara Lawrie, Brendan Lawrie, Matthew Lawrie, Saige Hourihan, Roman Hourihan, Hallie Hourihan, and Grayson Stenner; along with numerous nieces, nephews, cousins, extended family, and friends.


In addition to his parents, Tim is predeceased by his sister Nollaig Coleman, brother-in-law Frank McGrath, and in-laws Edward and Mary “Irene” Castle.


He was a former communicant of St. Christopher’s Church in Red Hook.
