1st Anniversary

In loving memory of Damien Byrne, late of 20 Morrison’s Road, whose first anniversary occurs on the 5th of August 2021. Mass was offered this morning Thursday 5th of August at 11am in the Holy Family Church.

Today we light some candles and say a special prayer

We go down memory lane and know that you are there

Our hearts are full of memories

With pride we speak your name

Though life goes on without you, it will never be the same.

From your heart broken Mam Margaret.


Gone is the face so loving and kind

Beautiful are the memories you left behind

Gone is the heart so caring and true

There’s never a day I don’t think of you.

Always in our hearts, Your loving sister Noelle, brother in law Tony and nephew Sean.


I’m Free

Don’t grieve for me for now I’m free

I followed the plan God laid for me

I saw his face, I heard his call

I took his hand and left it all

I could not stay another day

To love, to laugh to work or play

Tasks left above must stay that way

And if my parting left a void

Then fill it with remembrance joy

A friendship shared, a laugh a kiss

Ah yes, these things I too shall miss

My life’s been full, I’ve savored much

Good times, good friends, a loved ones touch

Perhaps my time seemed all too brief

Don’t shorten yours with undue grief

Be not burned with tears of sorrow

Enjoy the sunshine of tomorrow.

Your loving sister Gillian, brother in law Pat, nephew Patrick, nieces Toni and Daina.


They say there is a reason, they say that time will heal

But neither time nor reason will change the way we feel

For no one knows the heartache that lies behind our smiles

No one knows how many times

We have broken down and cried

Gone from home that smiling face

Those cheerful happy ways

The heart that won so many friends in bygone happy days.

We want to tell you something

So they’re won’t be any doubt

You’re so wonderful to think of but so hard to be without.

Never forgotten, Your loving brothers Tony and Fintan.


It’s been the hardest thing to lose you

You meant so much to me

But you are in my heart Brother

And that’s where you’ll always be

I know that Heaven called you

But I wish you could have stayed

At least the memories I have of you, they will never fade

I did not want to lose you but you did not go alone

Because a part of me went with you

When Heaven called you home

So just remember one thing

We are not apart

You’re with me in my memories and in my broken heart.

Missed dearly, Your loving sister Elaine, brother in law Billy, niece Ava and nephews Harry and Liam.
