Neville Furlong RIP

The funeral mass for Neville Furlong took place in Castleconnell today. The church was packed to overflowing which was a measure of the impact Neville had on so many different people.

Neville, father of Odran, 2nd Year and Kyle passed away in the care of the wonderful nurses and doctors of Milford Hospice after a long illness which was bravely borne.

The entire spectrum of the Glenstal community was represented at today’s funeral mass. Fr. Cuthbert and Fr. Denis represented the monastic community; various members of staff were led by Deputy Principal, Mr. Trevor Fitzgerald; and the members of Odran’s class were all in attendance.

Odran played the Uileann pipes at the communion and it was one of the most moving parts of the entire funeral mass.

We all extend our deepest sympathies, prayers and thoughts to the Furlong family and especially to Patricia, Odran and Kyle.
