Bunty O’Hara Acknowledgement and first anniversary

We, the family of Bunty O’Hara, 38 The Groves, Blarney, who went to sleep on October 5th 2017, would like to thank most sincerely all those who sympathised with us on a great loss. We offer heartfelt thanks to the many friends, neighbours and well wishers who visited our home, attended the wake, service and burial, and those who provided emotional and practical support for us all at a very difficult time for all. For those who telephoned, travelled, sent floral tributes, cards, and messages of condolence, we are truly grateful.

A special word of thanks to the wonderful neighbours and friends who kept an endless supply of food and drinks delivered to our home over the three days we had mam home with us. To Martin O’Shea and Blarney GAA who supplied us with seating and a hot water boiler for the endless cups of tea, and to the management of Fat Jack’s takeaway, thank you so much. To mam’s GP’s, the late Dr Daniel J. O’Donoghue, Dr Cait McMahon, and Dr Una O’Halloran for the excellent level of care ye gave her at home.

To the clinics in CUH Cork of Dr Eustace and Dr Harnady, and the staff of the day care unit who made mam’s last few hours so comfortable, and the lovely priest who sat, prayed and chatted with us.

To her wonderful carers her granddaughters Melissa and Samantha who looked after and cared for her 24/7 during the last few years which allowed her to live in her own home until the end, we can never thank you enough. And finally to her great neighbours in The Groves, especially Christy Dennehy who was very good to her, thank you Christy from all of us.

For those who participated in the mass, Father Lynch our neighbour who said a beautiful rosary, Father Fitzgerald for a lovely mass, and Patsy who sang so beautifully throughout. For O’Connors Funeral Directors North Gate Bridge for their sensitive and professional handling of arrangements.

As it would be impossible to thank everyone individually please accept this acknowledgement as an expression of our deepest gratitude.

Mass will be offered for your intentions The O’Hara family
