Dan Kennedy, Funeral Director

Few, if any, can ever be adequately prepared for the emotional stress which arises on the death of a loved one. Such an occasion represents one of the most traumatic days of your life.

It is precisely at that time that you need the services of professionals who understand what you are going through and who can handle discreetly all the necessary funeral arrangements with compassion and support.

For over 100 years, F. Dwan & Sons, Undertakers (Est. 1919) has been trusted by the people of Thurles and surrounding areas to care for their needs in handling their funeral arrangements.

Today under personal management of sole owner Dan Kennedy, I’m proud to continue this caring and professional service. Together with our experienced, professional and fully-trained personnel, we ensure that bereaved families receive the most compassionate, dignified and caring service for their loved ones.

The quality of service I provide and the commitment of our staff to maintaining such high standards has been recognised by numerous families over the years.


Upon contacting us, we will organise and advise on all of the funeral arrangements to ensure that the family’s wishes and requirements are met from beginning to end. 

At our premises, we stock a large range of coffins and caskets with designs that range from the elegantly simple to the traditional panels, manufactured from oak, mahogany, pine and eco-friendly wicker coffins.









Our fleet of funeral vehicles include a traditional hearse along with a modern smaller hearse for private discreet removals to or from residence, nursing homes or hospitals.

Our well designed Funeral Home is situated well in from the road at Upper Kickham Street, Dublin Road, Thurles, with parking space for family cars.

If you require any further information, please contact me by phone or call to me directly.
