About

Welcome to the Twomey Family Remorial Weekend

We were an extremely happy family treating ourselves to a ten day holiday in Devon. We chose the Devon, the sunny south west for our holiday as personally I was afraid to fly as I was five months pregnant with our beautiful little lady. Taking our car also gave us the luxury of bringing lots of baba Oisin’s toys etc., so we literally could have a home away from home. We had 6 fabulously carefree days together. Regretfully on day seven at 2:47 PM tragedy struck us and our wonderful life ended.

We were involved in a horrific crash with Marek R.I.P. which claimed the lives of our beautiful little man baba Oisin and his beautiful unborn sister. If that wasn’t tragic enough it also claimed the life of my darling husband Con on May 3rd last year.

Now we have decided to hold a weekend to remember with love and to honour Connie, baba Oisin & baby Elber Marie. We intend that this remorial weekend will be an annual event so that our beauties are never forgotten. Instead they will always be remembered with the love and honour that they so deserve.
