In line with current Covid-19 restrictions non-contact social distancing will be adhered to. The O'Connor family do not expect people to travel for the funeral, perhaps light a candle and think of Nora at 1pm on Tuesday. Those who are unable to attend can take part in the ceremony on the church live stream service on www.nenaghparish.ie.
