Wonderful Tribute from John O’Keeffe’s Nephews

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.”

A memory from the Past  when the Mill View Mural was completed.  Artist Supreme from Tipperary, Neil O’Dwyer (on left) being congratulated by wonderfully dedicated Millstreet Tidy Towns Committee members John O’Keeffe and Colman Culhane at the completion of the truly exquisite Mural at the entrance to Mill Lane (Mill View). Great credit is due to the O’Regan Family for the use of the excellent gable wall, to Tidy Towns for initiating the superb idea and to the Artist on bringing to reality the magnificent Mural which is already being hugely admired by countless people. A fuller feature to follow in later days. See Neil’s excellent website www.murals.ie to view his very wide-ranging masterpieces already achieved. (S.R.)
