The passing of Kathryn O'Reilly (Byrne)

It is with a great personal sadness that your editor records the death of his aunt Kathryn O'Reilly (nee Byrne), my late father's younger sister.

In her early 80s, she passed away last evening in the Blackrock Clinic after a short illness. 

Kath was the widow of the late Liam O'Reilly, and is survived by her elder sister Maureen and her sons William, Niall and Conor, daughter in law Dervil, and an extended family.

For now, pending reflection on her life, all I can say is may she rest in the peace she so richly deserves.

Kath, you loved much, and lived in life's strongest tides. We will all miss you.
