His removal was on Monday evening from Sextons funeral home Broadford to St Ita’s church Kilmeedy. His burial was after mass on Tuesday to Kilmeedy cemetery. The Chief celebrant was Very Rev Fr Patrick Bluett P.P. Music and Hymns at mass by Marion Matthews Dromcollogher. The symbols of Jerry’s life were brought to the altar. His coffin was draped in the blue and white flag of the Feenagh Kilmeedy G.A.A Club.

The late Jerry Kelly RIP was a well-known parishioner and a man of immense knowledge who led a very active life. In later years he was refined indoors at the Nursing home. He worked in farming life and in the building trade and would have cycled to work and to hurling games. He was a very big supporter of the Greyhounds’ sports and had dogs himself. His great friends in that sport were Tommy Quaid and Gerry Collins Feohanagh, Sean Power RIP Kilmeedy. He was also a great GAA supporter and was in attendance at many local games of hurling. He represented Kilmeedy and Feenagh Kilmeedy teams in the 1950’s as a player. Sympathy is extended to his nephews, nieces, cousins and the entire family.


Sympathy is extended to Mrs Brige O Sullivan, Callahow, Feenagh, her husband Seán and family on the death of her sister Mrs Ann Gileese RIP, Trim, Co. Meath.

Butterfly Pre-School – enrolments for September 2019

Butterfly Pre-School

Kilmeedy Community Development are already planning ahead for enrolments at Butterfly Pre-School for September 2019 and beyond. We have been pleasantly surprised at the level of demand for places and want to ensure that children in the parish can be provided with places. In order to establish demand, we would like parents who wish to enrol their children in the ECCE programme over the next few years to contact the Development Group by email [email protected]. By planning ahead we hope to be in a position to accommodate families on a ‘parish-first’ basis.

Any enquiries about the Breakfast and Homework Club can be made to Aoife O’Brien on 085 2154309. A bus operates to the Homework Club from Feenagh National School to Kilmeedy.
