Parishioners were saddened to learn of the death of Gabrielle McGovern (nee Kiely) of Chapel St. Tarbert on Sunday August 12 in St. Vincent's Hospital Dublin from an illness borne with courage and dignity.
Gabrielle had been post mistress in Tarbert for several years and was an esteemed member of the community where she played an active part in many aspects of parish activity. She was a very competent woman who was always willing to do a good turn for people if it was in her power to do so. Gabrielle was one of fourteen children born to Dan and Tessie Kiely.
Her remains were cremated in Cork on Wednesday with Requiem Mass for the repose of her soul taking place in St. Mary's Church Tarbert on Friday August 17 at 2pm.
Mass was concelebrated by her cousin Fr. Eugene Kiely, and Tommy's Cousin Monsignor Cook, Fr. Danny Broderick P.P. Tarbert and Fr. John O'Connor Retired P.P. London and several other priests were also present for the Mass.
An exceptionally large crowd of people travelled to Tarbert to pay their respects at the Mass. Everyone attending the funeral Mass were invited to partake of refreshments in the Community Centre after the funeral.
Gabrielle is survived by her husband Tommy, sisters; Sr Eily, Kathy, Philomena, Margaret, Imelda and Aggie; brothers Tim, Peter, Dan, Denis, Pat and Michael; extended family members, in-laws relatives, neighbours and friends to whom our sincere sympathy is extended. Interment took place in St. Mary's Cemetery Tarbert immediately after mass.
