Shock at sudden death of former banker Pat Farrell
West Wicklow native and retired Wexford banker Pat Farrell died suddenly while attending a dental appointment in the town last Friday afternoon.
Mr Farrell, from Colliga House, Rosslare Road, outside Wexford town and formerly of Knockanarrigan, Donard, is believed to have suffered a heart attack at Wexford Dental Clinic, on Custom House Quay. Ambulances rushed to the quayfront business in response to an emergency call, but there was nothing that could be done for Mr Farrell, who was 60 years old.
A staunch GAA fan, Mr Farrell retired from AIB bank several years ago.
He is survived by his wife Attracta, children Conor, Tara and Orlaith, sister Therese, grandchildren Caitlin and Leo, other relatives and friends.
His Requiem Mass took place at the Church of the Assumption in Wexford town on Monday last, followed by burial at Barntown.
Gardaí said Mr Farrell's passing was being treated as a natural sudden death.
