John Linehan, Cullen & Dooneen – First Anniversary & Acknowledgement

John Linehan


Formerly of HSE

First Anniversary 16th January 2022

Deeply loved and adored husband of Gillian and dad of Jennifer, Harry, Hugh and Josh. On this, the first anniversary of John’s passing we would like to acknowledge and thank those who have helped and supported us throughout John’s illness and during this past year. We want to thank those who cared for John; the Oncology and Radiotherapy Teams at Cork University Hospital; the Radiotherapy Team at the Beacon Hospital Dublin; the Homecare Team of Marymount University Hospital; the Public Health Nursing team, Millstreet; all at Murphy’s Pharmacy Boherbue and the entire team at Áth Trasna Medical Centre, Newmarket. We owe a debt of gratitude to those who cared for John with boundless generosity of self, kindness and compassion. We would especially like to thank Ms Mag Allen, Oncology Advanced Nurse Practitioner CUH, Dr Richard Bambury, Medical Oncologist CUH, Ms Maureen Murphy PHN, Millstreet and our GP Dr Bertie Daly, Newmarket.  John was honoured to have known you and privileged to have been able to call each of you a colleague and a friend. We wish to thank Davy, Cora and Elaine of Tarrant’s Funeral Directors for their kindness and professionalism; the management and staff of Millstreet Community School for taking such good care of the children during John’s illness and over the past year; Fr Kevin O’Sullivan for the beautiful Mass to celebrate John’s life; John’s colleagues at HSE and Gillian’s colleagues at MTU for their unwavering support throughout John’s illness and over this last year; the children’s many friends for bringing joy and laughter back into their lives and into our home this past year; our many friends, close neighbours and family who have shown us such love and support through what has been the toughest of times. We are honoured that we have raised funds for Marymount University Hospital and CUH through a Gofundme campaign set up in John’s memory and we are eternally grateful to all who have donated. The fund will help establish a permanent Acute Oncology Unit in CUH. This is a fitting tribute to John and a most appropriate legacy recognising his commitment to healthcare improvement, his dedication to nursing and his strong links with CUH throughout his career.

John will continue to live on through us, to walk beside us, to carry us, to inspire and motivate us, he will forever be our hero and will remain the wind beneath our wings.
