Funeral arrangements for the late Cathriona White RIP

08 Oct 2015

Father Tadhg Furlong, Parish Priest of Cappawhite Parish, Co Tipperary, in the Archdiocese of Cashel & Emly, has advised the Catholic Communications Office that the funeral arrangements for the late Cathriona White RIP have been announced by the White family.

The funeral arrangements are as follows: “White (LA & Greenfields, Cappawhite, Co Tipperary) September 28th 2015 at her residence Cathriona; daughter of the late Pat; Sadly missed by her sisters & brothers Lisa, James, Larina, Sarah & Tadhg, stepmother Bríd, mother Brigid, grandmother Lily, grandfather James, brothers-in-law John & Damien, nieces, nephews, uncles, aunts, relatives & a wide circle of friends.  Reposing at White’s Funeral Home, Cappawhite Friday evening from 5pm with removal at 8pm to Our Lady of Fatima Church, Cappawhite.  Requiem Mass Saturday at 11.30am and burial afterwards in Cappawhite Cemetery.”

Out of respect for the solemnity of the Funeral Liturgy on Friday evening, and similarly for the Funeral Mass on Saturday morning – and as Our Lady of Fatima Church has a limited capacity of three hundred seats – inside the church is reserved for family, loved ones and parishioners only.  An external loud speaker, and a small reserved area for media cameras, will be available on the church grounds.  Father Furlong asks that journalists refrain from making contact with him, but that all media queries should be directed to the Catholic Communications Office.  When information on the funeral liturgy becomes available, it will be circulated to media by the CCO.
