Ellen McGreal (nee Coyne)


Owenwee, Westport

Ellen McGreal passed away peacefully on December 15, 2017 after a long illness borne with remarkable courage, surrounded by her family.
Ellen was born to parents, John and Mary Coyne, Srathloe, Leenane.
She married her late husband Paddy McGreal and moved to Owenwee where she spent her life helping out on the family farm and rearing eight children. Ellen enjoyed the quiet, simple things in life. Attending to her garden and that of the needs of her family. She also looked forward to the company of her loyal neighbours and friends and the calling of her 23 grandchildren - they held a very special place in her heart.
Predeceased by her husband Paddy, Ellen will be sadly  missed by her sons: Dominick, John, Thomas, Pat and Austin; her daughters: Anne Kerrigan, Mary Kilkerr and Eileen O’Malley; brother Martin Coyne (Leenane); daughters-in-law Monica, Rosario, Mary, Julie and Suzanne; sons-in-law Padraic, PJ., and Martin; neighbours and friends.
May her gentle soul have peaceful rest.
