Brian's months mind mass took place In Kilfenora church on Sunday 3rd November. There was a large crowd in attendance which included the Mc Mahon, Fitzgerald families, friends and neighbours. Brian's niece Eve Mc Mahon lit a candle in memory of Brian. The mass was celebrated by Fr Ned Crosby who touched the congregation with his kind and meaningful words. The choir led by Brigid and Paul Reddan provided the lovely music which included a poignant rendition of Ubi Caritas. The hymn Eagles Wings was sung beautifully by Brian's niece Katie. Following the mass family members visited Brian's final resting place to say prayers. Later both families got together to chat, tell stories and recall the rich tapestry of kindness, love ,loyalty, sport, fun and generosity of spirit that was Brian's life.
When orchids brighten the earth
Darkest winter has turned to spring,
May this dark grief flower with hope
In every heart that loves you
May you continue to inspire us.
Our thoughts and prayers are with Patricia, Luke and Rory.
