First Anniversary and Acknowledgement

Daniel (Dan) O’Connell

Millstreet & Clonbanin


 Aged 31 years

It is with deep sadness that Daniel’s family mark the first anniversary of his passing.

Daniel was taken from us suddenly on Tuesday 13th December 2022.

Heartfelt thanks to Elaine Flynn and Michael Cleary, the First Responders, Paramedics, Fire Services and all who worked so hard in trying to preserve Daniel’s life following the tragic road traffic collision. We are eternally grateful for all your help.

We offer our sincere gratitude to all those who attended Daniel’s removal and funeral. Some travelled long distances in very inclement weather conditions as a mark of respect for Daniel and to be with us, it is very much appreciated.  Also a huge thank you to all who offered condolences, sent mass cards, messages, letters, wreaths, brought gifts to the house and to all those who shared and acknowledged our grief.

We wish to express our deep appreciation to all who took part in Daniel’s funeral service. To Canon John Fitzgerald and Fr. Donal O’Riordan for celebrating a beautiful funeral Mass. To his friends that took mementos of his life to the alter, the readers, singers and musicians, Margaret O’Farrell and the Cronin Family (Daniel’s Cousins). To Sharon for arranging prayers and mass booklet and to sacristan Julie for all your help, it is very much appreciated.

A very special thanks to Tarrant’s Funeral Services Davy, Cora and Declan for their outstanding professionalism, help, advice and support at such a very difficult time.

Thanks to the management and staff of the Wallis Arms Hotel for a wonderful service following Daniel’s funeral and to Ursula and staff of the Clara Inn who accommodated us after.

We are most grateful to Daniel’s friends for sharing fond memories of Daniel, there was some lovely recall and it is a great help to us in the grieving process.

As it would be impossible to thank everyone individually please accept this acknowledgement of our sincere appreciation. Your kindness, compassion and support will always be remembered.  The holy sacrifice of the Mass has been offered for your intentions.

Daniel’s First Anniversary Mass will take place in St. Patrick’s Church, Millstreet at 6.15pm on Saturday 16th December 2023

Deep in our hearts your memory is kept

To love, to cherish, and never forget.
