  2. At the Ruane family reunion, such a happy soul I saw,
    How I’d love to see him play the spoons and accordion more,
    The family parties we had in Carrentrilla were such fun,
    Heartbroken Kathleen, Caroline & Jason may feel now, but they have won,
    They have wonderful memories of a very good family man,
    Remembered with love & did all that he could can,
    He will sadly be missed for sure,
    James, Tess, Kevin & Joe will welcome him through the door.
    Many prayers to you all, love Sharon, Brad and Liam x

  3. Sincere sympathy Kathleen, Jason, Violet and Ruane Family on sad loss of your husband and father keeping you in our thoughts and prayers.

  4. Condolences to Kathleen and Caroline & Jason. May his gentle soul rest in peace.

  5. Hello, dear family. Sending big hugs, love and prayers to you one and all. I’m thinking of you at this time, and the times I spent in your company at the old homestead when I visited in November of ‘99 and at the big 2005 Ruane Reunion. I’m sorry for Muredach‘s passing. He was a lovely man whose company I was fortunate enough to enjoy. I appreciated his good humor, talent, warmth and kindness. These are the traits I’ve come to find in all of the Ruanes I’ve known and know; in the U.S., England and Ireland. Tis a rare and beautiful thing. Treasure it and know you’re loved. Family matters, and moments make memories. Here’s to sharing and celebrating the ones we have with one another, while making more as we do. All my love to all of you and may God bless you all.

    Until we meet again xo

    Your cousin, Quint

    Grandson of Bridget (Ruane) Flynn & husband, Patrick, and son of Lawrence Flynn 🙏❤️☘️🕊
