Sincere sympathies to Eileen and extended family on the death of your sister Veronica. A difficult time for you all. Keeping you in my thoughts and prayers. May she rest in peace.

Jackie and Amy GallagherFriend

Dear Tony, Nessa and Fergal, Veronica was always an inspiration to us. She encouraged Amy to not take the easy route in education or life, to go after the big courses and the tough Science, Maths and other subjects. To me she has always been a great friend and wisdom giver. Since I was a journalist in the 1980s I have admired her intelligence, honesty and kindness to many including me. When I first set up in business, she was there to help and harboured us on our first day. If I needed a second opinion on something I could always rely on her judgement and insight. If a speech needed to be done, there was no one who could match her ability to make the most ordinary speaker extraordinary with her gift with words. Her sense of social justice and of right and wrong were exceptional. She was one of a kind. She will be always missed by all of you but also by many others lucky enough to have her at the end of a phone line or as a friend in front of them and for them. Her illness has been a cruel ending and her send off not as it should be given the times but her life will be celebrated by us all tonight and in perpetuity.

So sorry to hear about Veronica’s premature passing. She was a strong, brave and one of the brightest women I ever knew. Sincere condolences to Tony, Nessa and Fergal.
