Tributes paid to Limerick woman whose family have been ‘part and parcel’ of village for decades

Christina Daffy (née Quaid) who passed away on November 3

TRIBUTES have been paid to a late Limerick woman, whose family has been ‘part and parcel’ of a County Limerick village for decades, as she is laid to rest this Tuesday. 

Christina Daffy, of Skagh, Croom and late of Daffy's Funeral Directors in Croom and Kilmallock, passed away peacefully on November 3. 

Ms Daffy, née Quaid, is survived by her husband Donie, sons Michael, who runs Daffy’s Funeral Directors in Kilmallock as well as Daffy’s Bar, Shane, Daniel and George, her brother Mike, and her sisters Frances, Mary and Anne. 

Ms Daffy is also survived by daughters-in-law, grandchildren, nephew, sisters-in-law, brothers-in-law, relatives, neighbours and a large circle of friends.

“The community is saddened to hear of her death because the Daffy family has been part and parcel of the town of Croom for decades,” former County Councillor and Croom native Pat Fitzgerald said.

“Our deepest sympathies to Donie, her husband and to the family.” 

Ms Daffy will be laid to rest this Tuesday after Requiem Mass at 12 noon in Relig Mhuire Croom.
