Sean Jackson Killenard, Portarlington, Laois / Ballyfermot, Dublin

Formerly of Ballyfermot, Dublin. Passed peacefully, surrounded by his loving friends and family, at Portlaoise Hospital, after a mighty battle. Predeceased by his parents Paddy and Rosie and sister Renee.

Sadly missed by his loving daughters Karen and Adrienne, brother and sisters Kala, Gemma, Veronica, Fiona and Patrick, his ex and sparring partner Loraine, grandchildren, great-grandson, nieces, nephews, grandnieces, grandnephews and all who knew him will miss his riotous laughter and knack for telling you what you needed to hear whether you liked it or not. Please join us to talk about him and tell stories. Wear something that makes you feel good and bright, he will expect that. Please join us to celebrate his loves and life.


May He Rest In Peace.


A Celebration of Love for Sean will take place at the Garden Chapel at Mount Jerome Crematorium on Monday, 25th March, at 2:15pm.


Sean’s Service will be streamed live on
