Fingallians GAA recently paid tribute to the late Doreen McKittrick who sadly died after a short illness, leaving a large heartbroken family behind and a huge circle of friends, writes Rose Barrett.

Doreen cast a huge footprint in the community of Swords – and of course, with 25 grandchildren and 25 great grandchildren, her connection with so many clubs will continue along with being sorely missed within her family circle.

The club wrote: “All at Fingallians GAA were very sad to hear of the recent passing of Doreen McKittrick, mother of Susan, Stephanie, Fr Brian and club stalwarts, David and Derek.

“Doreen was a part of the fabric of Swords and assisted many through her long-time involvement with Swords ICA. Thousands have benefitted from her efforts but she was never one to take credit.”

The club noted: “Doreen recognised and promoted the importance of the GAA’s community involvement, and this is evidenced by her family’s deep involvement in the Association that is continuing through her grandchildren and will continue through her great-grandchildren and beyond.

“Réalt eile múchta ón spéir ach cuimhneoimid go deo í. Suaimhneas síoraí dá hanam.”

The late Doreen from Glasmore Park, Swords and formerly of Cabra West, was laid to rest at

Rock’s Funeral Home, Swords followed by removal to St Cronan’s Church, Brackenstown for a funeral mass before making her final journey to Swords Cemetery. Funeral service can be viewed at this link:

The late Doreen is predeceased by her husband Willie, and mourned by her daughters Stephanie and Susan, sons Derek, David and Fr Brian; also Wilbur, Catherine, Michael, Agnes, Robin and the late Hannah, sons-in-law Matt, Brendan, Bud and Sean, daughters-in-law Ita, Ellen, Marc, Denise and the late Christine, her 25 grandchildren and 25 great-grandchildren, sister Kay and the late Rosie, brothers Dessie and the late Fonny and Raymond, relatives and a wide circle of friends and neighbours. May she rest in peace, amen.
