In one message, he wrote, 'I honour #StPatricksDay but even more I honour my late Father who always made this day so Special in The Holmes Household ☘ Happy memories. A real Dad who entertained his boys. Not enough space to tell you how good he was. He and today will always live on in his 5 Sons. ☘☘☘'
