Acknowledgement and First Anniversary

On Peggy’s first anniversary, we her children, together with our families and her brother Dennie Mulcahy, wish to acknowledge and express our deepest gratitude for the sympathy and kindness shown to us during our time of sadness and bereavement.

The many kind messages of condolence and cards we received, have been a source of great comfort to us and are truly appreciated.

Special thanks to the entire community of Millstreet who supported Mam in her declining years…from the very helpful staff in shops and the Post Office to those who helped her extract her car from tight parking spots!

Many thanks to our wonderful neighbours, relatives and friends who supported us during Mam’s illness and throughout the past year and to those who came to say farewell as the funeral cortege travelled on its way.

Our heartfelt thanks to Nora O’ Halloran and Mary O’ Sullivan, Dysert, two incredibly kind ladies, who were pillars of support for Mam and Dad over their last years and have become our great friends.

Our sincere gratitude to Mam’s wonderful home carers, Margaret O’Leary and Margaret Buckley who ensured that she wanted for nothing.

How fortunate we were that Liza Castro joined our family to help care for Mam at home. Her very capable, thoughtful and good-humoured way was better than any medicine!

We would like to extend our thanks to Dr. Breda O’ Sullivan, Dr. Michael Casey, the SouthDoc team, Ambulance Crews,  all in Reen’s Pharmacy, the staff of Mallow General Hospital and Cork University Hospital for their care of Mam.

We are deeply indebted to our Public Health nurse Elaine Reardon, to Bina and the Marymount Hospice support team and to the ‘Daffodil’ nurses for their remarkable kindness and care during Mam’s illness and final days.  We really appreciated their guidance as we accompanied Mam on her final journey.  A special word of thanks to our friend and neighbour Anne O’ Hare, who was always there to support us at any hour.

Sincere appreciation to Rev. Fr. Jim Kenneally P.P. for his lovely visits to Mam and for celebrating her funeral Mass. His online Masses meant so much to her during Covid lockdown.    

Our grateful thanks to Sharon and Julie for their guidance and understanding.

To Davy, Cora and all at Tarrant Undertakers, we are most grateful for their professional and personal touch.

As it would be impossible to thank everyone individually, please accept this acknowledgement as an expression of our thanks and appreciation.

The Holy Sacrifice of the Mass will be offered for all your intentions.

Peggy’s First Anniversary Mass will be celebrated and live-streamed on Sunday, 5th December at 11.30 a.m. from St. Patrick’s Church, Millstreet.
