LEENEY, Niamh (née Jordan) 6 July, Ardilea, Clonskeagh, in the care of SVPH. Niamh went through a huge struggle with cancer over a long period and did this with strength and such an evenly based approach, never complaining about the reasons, only seeking to overcome the disease.

The family would like to thank SVUH for their care and attention to Niamh in the days leading to her final crisis. Also, Prof. Janice Walshe and her team for their care and support for Niamh during her illness and particularly Prof. Walshe’s comprehensive approach to dealing with and communicating about her illness. We would also like to thank the palliative care teams both in SVPH and in Blackrock Hospice who took such gentle care of Niamh in managing her medicines and making her comfortable.


She will be missed by her friends, her fellow artists and the many people whose lives she has touched in so many different ways.
