14th Anniversary

In loving memory of our dear mother, grandmother and sister Bridget Dunne, late of Knockeen, Butlerstown and Ballycroddick, Dunhill whose 14th anniversary occurs on July 22.

A bouquet of beautiful memories,

Sprayed with a million tears,

Wishing God could have spared you,

If just for a few more years,

It does not take a special day,

For us to think of you,

Each Mass we hear, each prayer we say,

Is offered up for you,

We cannot bring the old days back,

When we were all together,

The family chain is broken now,

But memories live forever.

A Mother’s love is a blessing

No matter where you roam,

Love her while she’s living,

You’ll miss her when she’s gone,

Love her as in childhood,

Though feeble old and grey,

You’ll never miss your mother’s love,

Till she’s buried beneath the clay.

Missed today and every day from your loving daughter Mary, sons Richard and Paul, son-inlaw John, daughters-in-law Elizabeth and Bernie and grandchildren.


3rd Anniversary

In loving memory of Nellie O’Leary (nee Barry) late of St David’s, College St, Waterford whose 3rd anniversary occurs on July 22nd. Mass offered Sunday 25th of July at 12 noon in the Cathedral.

A smile for all, a heart of gold

One of the best this world could hold

Never selfish, always kind

These are the memories you left behind

To hear your voice

To see your smile

To sit and talk with you a while

To be together in the same old way

Would be my dearest wish today.

Though absent you are always near

Still loved, still missed, still very dear.

Sadly missed by your loving husband Tom, daughter Caroline, son-in-law Ray, grandchildren Emily, Tom, Kate. Your son Damien, partner Tara, grandchildren Noah, Lennon. Your son David, grandchildren Bronagh, Nathan. Your brother Johnny, your brother-in-law Johnny Keane.


Love you Nanny

For leading the way

Teaching me about life

work and play

Being with you

Was obviously fun

We talk about things

Under the sun

Love you Nanny

For your support and care

Your inner beauty

Is awesome and rare

A very cool Nanny

Really laid back

thanks for those times

You cut me some slack.

From your loving grandchildren Emily, Tom, Kate, Bronagh, Nathan, Lennon and Noah. Xxxxx


5th Anniversary

Loving memories of our dear Mother & Grandmother Anne O’Regan late of San Martino, Belvedere Drive whose 5th anniversary occurs on 22nd July 2021. Mass Offered.

Those special memories of you,

Will always bring a smile,

If only I could have you back

Just for a little while.

Then we could sit and talk again

Just like we used to do.

You always spent so very much

And always will do too.

The fact that you’re no longer here

Will always cause me pain.

But you’re forever in my heart

Until we meet again.

From your loving husband Maurice xx


We thought of you with love today,

But that is nothing new.

We thought about you yesterday

And days before that too.

We think of you in silence,

We often speak your name,

All we have are memories,

And your picture in a frame.

Your memory is our keepsake

Of which we will never part,

God has you in his keeping,

We have you in our heart.

Always remembered your daughter Lorna & Damien xx


They say that times a healer,

But we are not so sure,

For every time we think of you,

We miss you even more.

The pain and heartache linger on,

And make us feel so blue,

And even when we wear a smile,

We’re longing Mam for you.

And so we just want you to know,

That you will always stay,

Loved and remembered in our hearts,

Forever and a day.

Sadly missed your son Damian & Claire xx


Death changes everything,

Time changes nothing,

We still miss the sound of your voice,

The wisdom in your advice,

The stories of your life and just being in your presence.

So, no, time changes nothing.

We still miss you as much today, as the day you died.

We just miss you.

Sadly missed by your son Clive & Michelle xx


A million times we’ve needed you,

A million times we’ve cried.

If love alone could have saved you,

You never would have died.

In life we loved you dearly,

In death we love you still,

In our hearts you hold a place

No one else can ever fill.

It broke our hearts to lose you,

But you didn’t go alone,

Part of us went you,

The day God took you home.

Remembered always your daughter Tanya & Stewart xx


There is a lady in heaven, So precious and so rare,

That lady is our nanny, Who is loved beyond compare.

Love always nanny from your grandchildren,

Grace, Ava, Ella, Heather, Noah, Caoimhe, Mhairi, Dylan & Hannah xx
