The passing of Joseph McTernan

The Diary has learned with sadness of the death of Joseph McTernan, after a long illness borne with dignity and good humour.

Joseph was brother of Yvonne, Brian, Ber, Valerie and Donal, who will miss him very much, as will other members of the wider family and all their many friends.

He will be reposing at his residence from 3 o'clock on Thursday afternoon with removal at 6.30 to arrive at the Church of the Sacred Heart and St Brigid, Kilcullen for 7 o'clock. His funeral Mass will be on Friday morning at 11 o'clock followed by burial afterwards in St Brigid's Cemetery.

The family wish to acknowledge and thank the staff of Tallaght Hospital, the wonderful carers from the Wheelchair Association, and all who cared lovingly for Joseph.

May he rest in peace.
