A friend and inspiration to many, Vicky Phelan was keen to ensure that all who wanted had the opportunity to join with her family in a celebration of her life and to pay their final respect at a special ceremony.
In a statement the Phelan and Kelly families said, “Goodbyes are never easy and on Thursday last we said ours, in what was a very moving and deeply personal gathering amongst family and friends. “Stories were told and tears were shed, but we also shared a smile or two as we remembered the remarkable life of our wonderful Vicky.
“We would also like to take this opportunity to extend our heartfelt gratitude for all the good wishes from near and far over the last week. We too felt the nations love and are forever grateful.
With this in mind, everyone is invited to her native Mooncoin, Co Kilkenny on Sunday, November 27 next at 1pm, where Vicky’s wish will be honoured.
“As numbers in the church itself are limited, there will be a live stream available on the day also, details of which will be posted later in the weeklong with further updates on the event itself. At this point it’s fair to say that music will feature prominently, with some of her favourite musicians playing a few of her favourite tunes on the day.”
