    Uncle Pat was always a larger than life figure on our home visits in the early 1960’s, probably most memorable when we used the caravan a Bundoran for a week by the sea. Pat took me to see the doctor in Omagh so that eveyone else could stay on the coast. AS I remember it, he drove me everywhere to see everyone and then back to Bundoran. A few years ago he told me that we never got to the doctor as he fell asleep after a long visit with one of his friends.
    Then there were the Saturday evenings around the TV when I visited in the 1970’s, all the McCarneys and me, enjoying a good movie after Celine had fixed up a great dinner.
    Thank you, Patrick!
    May you RIP after such a great life.

    My sincere condolences to all the McCarney family. I will think of you during this sad time and wish I was there with you.

    Uncle Pat, Aunt Peggy and myself shared many laughs, drinks and dances together with Pat always ending the evening with “ My Way”. He was a special person who loved his family and many friends. I will miss him dearly when I visit Fintona.

    Dear Pat you will always be in my heart.

    I am so sorry to hear about your Dad’s death, which Una just told me about…Pat was quite a man. I really enjoyed having the opportunity to sit down and have a chat with him Sept. 2015 (when I was home for my brother Dominic’s 60th). He was his usual chatty self, telling me many stories about his trips around Ireland, to the US plus other places. You could tell he was very proud of all his family. My family loved staying at his caravan in Bundoran in our early years, in fact, mum and I babysat for him one week! Pat was our go-to for most of our groceries and was very supportive towards my parents by helping delivering the goods etc. We thank your dad for all he did in this regard. May Pat be at peace now…Anne and Mc Carron family.

    Very sorry to read of “uncle Pat’s” demise. I remember meeting Pat on one of my early trips to Fintona through Aunt Celine. He was larger than life at the time. Later, on one of my rare visits to Ireland, we had shared many private conversations over a few beers and of course he would get up and sing his best rendition of My Way. I would like to send my heart-felt condolences to the McCarney family. May he rest in peace.
