Joe as he was known will be fondly remembered as a dedicated & devoted husband, father and grandfather, brother and friend to many. His warm personality, sense of wit and his genuine love for family and friends won the hearts of many. Joe was a former member of the Irish Defence Forces where he earned the respect of members of all ranks. He had a tremendous faith and travelled to Knock Shrine regularly with his wife Cassie on private pilgrimages. The town of Kells both young and old were greatly saddened following the peaceful death of Joe, who loved his native Kells.
May Joe's gentle presence be embraced in the gentle care of God and in the company of Our Lady of Knock. May Joe Rest In Peace
