Please accept our sincere condolences for the loss of our first cousin Irene. My Mother, Claire Kenmure McDonnell, who went to be with our Lord in 2001, was Irene's Father's Sister. My brothers, sister and family share many memories as children growing up with Irene and her sisters, brothers and parents at family gatherings in past years. May God bless Irene's family at this sad time of loss,
