Deaths in Tipperary

Seamus Gleeson
Silvermines, Nenagh, Tipperary

We regret to state the sudden death of Seamus Gleeson of Manchester, England and formerly Silvermines, Nenagh, Co. Tipperary. Predeceased by his father Jimmy and mother Peggy. Deeply regretted and sadly missed by his loving family; wife Mary, daughter Denise, son James, brothers Paddy and Séan, sisters-in-law, brothers-in-law, nieces, nephews, cousins, relatives and friends.

Rest In Peace.

Dear all,

First and foremost, we would like to thank people for their condolences. I knew my dad would talk to anyone, giving them his time, but gosh we have been blown away and overwhelmed by the outpouring of prayers, love and well wishes for which we would like to thank each and every one of you.

We can now confirm that the funeral arrangements are as follows:

Date of funeral: 01/07/2021

Funeral mass at St John’s Church, Chorlton at 10:00am with burial at Southern Cemetery at 11:30am.

As many of you know or I’m sure my dad will have told you, both my mum and I have worked directly throughout this pandemic within healthcare. I probably have the most knowledge within the family on this topic; the risk and the current status in England/Manchester more specifically. Unfortunately, no person can be 100% confident regardless of previous infection, vaccination status etc and please believe me if anyone is doubtful - based on my clinical experience, this virus is serious.

I personally have taken the extremely difficult decision to postpone any further arrangements beyond the church and burial to protect the safety of family and friends attending. Please do not visit the house following the Church service as this defeats the objective. Please respect the 2 meters social distancing guidance at the church and graveyard.

We would also like to make it extremely clear that we do not expect any person to travel - and we will be more upset thinking anyone has worried or stressed about this. The service will be online and viewable by St John’s Facebook page, which I will provide a direct link for prior to the date, so you can ensure you can view the service. Of additional concern we cannot promise that the UK government will not cap attendees to 30 or less at some point prior to the service, so please bear this in mind.

At the end of the day this pandemic is a pain - but my father always said ‘never do half a job’ and he would never want the celebration of his life to be anything less than the party he deserves. I can assure you this will occur at a later date and we will ensure to make an arrangement for this both in Manchester and the Silvermines.

As a family, we would just ask that all raise a glass on that evening, remember, smile and think of that story special to you - I know you all have a mad one to tell! - and we will share these at a time when we can all be together to celebrate the wonderful man that was Seamus Gleeson!

May he Rest in Peace x
