Margaret (Mags) Casey (née Sweeney) Portarlington, Offaly

Margaret “Mags” Casey (née Sweeney), 62, of Brooksville, Florida passed away Sunday, July 24, 2022. She was born in Portarlington, County Offaly, Ireland to Sylvester and Catherine Sweeney.


She will be sadly missed and lovingly remembered by her heartbroken family, her husband Paul, children Katie, Sean and Stephen, sister Johanna, brothers John and Danny and her two grandchildren Sofia and Kian.


A devoted mother and wife, enthusiastic grandmother, loyal sister, caring friend and passionate gardener – a dazzling, warm and witty woman who has left a mark on so many people’s lives and will live on through their memories of her and her radiant smile.


A celebration of her life will be held at a later date. In lieu of flowers the family appreciate donations to the Irish Heart Foundation.
