Carrowkennedy, Liscarney, Westport
William Patrick Dunne, better known as Padraic, passed away peacefully on November 7 at Mayo University Hospital, Castlebar, surrounded by his family. He was son of the late William and Mary Dunne, Carrowknnedy, and was born on May 18, 1961. He attended Carrowkennedy National School and later worked on the family farm. He also worked with Westport Urban Council. Padraic liked to socialise and had a great interest in all sport, but especially watching his favourite team, Arsenal playing. In 1993 he was dealt a heavy blow with his health and was hospitalised many times over the years, but he never complained, taking it on with courage and determination.
One week prior to his death he attended a wedding with family, neighbours and friends, with which he enjoyed meeting people. Padraic will be sadly missed by his brother John, sister-in-law Ann, sister Catherine, brother-in-law John O’Malley, nephews Shane and Aaron, uncle, aunt, aunt-in-law, cousins, neighbours and friends. May he rest in peace.
