It is with broken hearts and many tears that we announce the sad passing of our little warrior Éanna, who slipped away at home, in the arms of his parents, on the 7th of June, 2023, in the presence of all his family, surrounded with love. Éanna came into this world on Valentine’s day 2021, he was a loveable rogue, who fought his battle with bravery, courage and smiles.


Cherished and adored son, Éanna will forever be in the hearts of his loving parents Emear and Simon. Remembered fondly and with much love by his grandparents Gerry and Brigid Starken and by his mamó Barbara Bergin. Sadly missed by his uncles Tom, Conall, Daragh & Shane, cousins Angelo & Junior, grand-uncles, grand-aunts, great-grandmothers, his many special friends both big and small and by the extended Starken and Bergin families.
