Death Of John Collins, Thurles, Co. Tipperary.

It was with a very deep personal sadness that I learned of the death yesterday, Wednesday 23rd December 2020, of colleague Mr John Collins, Kennedy Park, Thurles, Co. Tipperary.

A man who brought great joy to the lives of all those whose path he crossed, and predeceased by his wife Sheila (née Crowe); Mr Collins passed away peacefully, surrounded by his loving family, while in the wonderful care of Johnny, Josie and family at their residence at Mullanbrack, Thurles.

His passing is most deeply regretted by his sons Jimmy, Tommy and Johnny; daughters Nuala (O’Donovan, Kilteely, Co. Limerick), and Ann (McGann, Stillorgan, Co. Dublin), grandchildren Ronan, Niamh, Katie, Christopher, Sean, Padraig and Chloe; daughters-in-law Josie and Breda; sons-in-law Michael and Paddy; brother Jim; sister Mary; nephews; nieces; extended relatives; neighbours and many friends.

Requiescat in Pace.
