The family of the late Colm ‘Gunner’ Quinn of Newry and, New York, who sadly passed on the 10th of March 2021, wish to acknowledge the many expressions of sympathy and gestures of kindness shown to them following their sad loss. Parents, Mary and Tom, siblings, Donal, Ciara, Marita and Patrick, brothers in law, Iain and Eoin, sister-in-law, Pauline, nieces, Áine, Brigid and Sadhbh and nephew Finbar, Grandmother, May McDonald and the wider family circle. 

Unfortunately, due to Covid Restrictions many people were unable to offer their condolences to us in person, and we have been overwhelmed by the many gestures of kindness and outpouring of sympathy extended through various means. All family and friends that sympathised with us the world over. People calling at the house to offer sympathy, sending messages, cards, letters, and floral tributes, they were most welcome and gave us great comfort.
