    Our rehearsal room for As You Like It at the Arts Centre was in a crazy space above a furniture store in Lichfield St, which still had murals of naked men on the walls from its previous tenants. Beginning rehearsal in that squalid space, we were suddenly stopped by the most delicious singing pouring in the windows. saemus was playing duplicate roles on the show, one of which was a singing shepherd, and he was practising in the dodgy alleyway downstairs. Once I heard that amazing voice, I knew the show was going to be a class act, no matter where we had to rehearse. Saemus was recognised an as amazing talent, at our high school (BHS), in Speech and Drama comps (sorry about the Jubille Cup- you were a lovely Romeo, but it was funny when the curtain shut with your leg on the outside), and, thankfully, in his professional life. I am so glad he was gaining the acclaim he deserved. Miss you always Saemus.

    I heard you only twice. the first time in March 2004, at a concert in Auckland. I had taken my mother, who was herself to die only 8 months later. She was so impressed with Seamus' singing, as I was too, that she went up to you afterwards to congratulate you. Such great ability, and greater potential, lost tragically young. I feel such sorrow for your widow. Far too soon to be separated.

    Seamus,

    It's such a tragedy to hear you've passed on.

    You and I worked together at Big Fresh Christchurch when we were at school. You were such a lovely chap, always friendly and cheerful, making everyone around you feel good. You took a genuine interest in people and were always so encouraging of everyone. You also befriended me despite my lack of social graces!

    I remember attending one of the interschool concerts and hearing your amazing solo. I also listened to your first radio show, 'Seamus the try-hard jock' - good listening!

    It's great to see that you were doing so well in your talents; it was well-deserved.

    What a tragedy to see you go. My thoughts and prayers are with your family.

    You probably never knew me but I remember you because you gave many great singing performances at Burnside High School in NZ.

    I went to a musical performance earlier tonight and it reminded me of you. So I got home and searched your name on the internet, thinking you are probably a successful singer by now.

    I am shocked to hear of your passing, and my thoughts go out to your loved ones.

    Ethan, from Sydney.

    Seamus was my cricket captain when I first joined Burnside High School after immigrating to New Zealand in 1997. He was a wonderful, humorous guy with a great voice. I remember feeling homesick during those early days but playing cricket on Saturdays with Seamus and the boys really did ease the anxiety of integrating into a new society. I am really sad to hear about Seamus's passing, at such a young age. My thoughts go out to his family.

    Seamus, I have only found out today and i feel so sad, we worked together at Virgin Mobile and there was never a dull moment when you were around, you did soo many funny things, one of those was your 5 second rule, and singing all the time. You were soo cool and im sure that your star is shining brighter than ever.

    I worked with Seamus at MetLife and I am very sorry that it was for such a short time. He was such a vibrant personality (funky hat on a Friday) and achieved so much in the short time that he was with us. He is sorely missed. My thoughts go out to Laura and his family at this hard time.
