At the Funeral Mass of the late John O’Keeffe today (5th Feb. 2021) his nephew, John O’Keeffe paid a wonderful tribute at the end of the very special Funeral Mass in St. Patrick’s Church, Millstreet. We have also received a further superb tribute from another nephew, Arthur O’Neill which reads:
“As a nephew of John O’Keeffe, who has been unable to attend his funeral and celebrate his life in the usual way, I have found great solace reading the fantastic remarks, which are, in his case well deserved, on this site. I thank you for this facility and wish Millstreet all the very best for the future. He was not good, or great but a fantastic Uncle, and is sorely missed, but our faith says he is now with all he has loved and held dear who have gone before him.”

We thank Con’s Daughter, Mary (who so superbly supported Con especially in his later years within a very welcoming home setting) for also sharing a number of images showing Con in his renowned Postman’s role and also his great love and care of pet dogs. We extend our sincere sympathy to the entire O’Sullivan Family on the sad departure of Con to his Eternal Reward. R.I.P.. Ar dheis Dé go raibh a anam dílis. Click on the images to enlarge. (S.R.)
