Comhbhrón ó chroí libh ar bhás bhur máthar agus comhbhrón lena muintir is lena cairde go léir.

Casadh Catherine orm nuair a d'fhreastail sí ar bhronnadh Dhuais Bhreandáin Uí Eithir san Ollscoil i nGaillimh. Bhí lá aoibhinn gealgháireach againn a mhaireann beo i mo chuimhne.

Go ndéana Dia grásta ar a hanam dílis agus gura móide teaghlach na Glóire a hanam.

"Paidrín páirteach i nGairdín Pharrthais,
Do mhac na mná a bhí gan locht,
A Aonmhic Mhuire is a Rí na nGrást,
Ná lig ar fán m'anam bocht."
— Lillis Ó Laoire

Very sad to hear of Catherine’s passing. She was an indomitable spirit showing amazing resilience in
dealing with the various losses and
setbacks that she encountered in her interesting and diverse life.
Having spent most of her life living in
large cities the places she really loved were small and local like the
Aran Islands and Ballagh!
— Michael Ryan
Catherine was a part of my life since she came to Ireland at around 18 - I remember the excitement of her room being repapered for her arrival. Her death leaves me with a great sense of loss, she was so much part of our lives, as she was of the lives of so many others.
I greatly regret I will not be there to celebrate her funeral with all her friends and family, but tomorrow specially you will all be much in my thoughts. My love to you all.

Sincere condolences to Catherine's family and to all of her many friends. I worked with her for a brief period in Paris during the mid 80s and was also privileged to know her husband Brendán. What a wonderful person she was - a vivacious storyteller and despite her tribulations always wore that beautiful smile. She is the only person, apart from my mother, who ever baked me a sponge cake. That was a lovely evening in her homely Paris apartment. Ar dheis Dé go raibh a anam.

I was very sad to hear of Catherine's passing. She was a wonderful person and was a big part of my childhood as she lived next door to our family for many years in Taney Road. Mairin was my best friend growing up. We always had such great laughs with her over the years and she was such a good-humoured person notwithstanding all her many trials. My thoughts and prayers are with you Ruairi, Brian and Maria. Sending you a big hug from Rome.
