Remembering the Wonderful Breeda Tarrant

Michael Tarrant has shared the following in remembering Breeda:  “On Saturday, 4th June 2022 we got to bury my mother’s ashes in St. Mary’s Cemetery as were her wishes. I would like to thank people that made it a special day for us as a family. Canon John Fitzgerald and Sharon Lane for their help with organising the Mass. Edel Frazer and Niamh O’Mahony for the wonderful music in the Church.  Marie Twomey for playing the bagpipes at the grave and Davy Tarrant also.  Humphrey Healy and Caroline and Staff at the Bridge Bar, Millstreet for looking after us so well. Thanks to everyone who travelled from near and far to be with us.”
