2021 Virtual Twomey Family Remorial, a huge success.

“Our Virtual Twomey Family Remorial was a great success again thank God. The response was absolutely amazing! We had people across 21 counties of Ireland and in England, Wales, France, Holland, Italy and the US walk, run or cycle for Con, Baba Oisín and Little Lady.

On Friday night we had our Virtual Twomey Family Remorial Quiz. Con’s brother-in-law Aonghus, runs a fantastic and hugely entertaining quiz each year in Meelin hall. My brother Tomás always helps him with the technical side, and this year, similar to last, between them both they managed to run a highly entertaining night, which I think everyone enjoyed. The support and banter was fantastic.


The messages and photos that people posted on social media throughout the week, were honestly overwhelming. They were from the young and from the not so young, from singles, couples and families, from great friends and relatives, and many wonderful people we don’t know, all of whom took to the roads for Con, Baba Oisín and Little Lady. Truly amazing people!

In March 2020, I was worried that our Beauties would be forgotten and their legacy lost! However, because of all the amazing people who joined in, and took part in both our 2020 and 2021 Twomey Family Remorial, I honestly think Our Beauties and their ‘Life Is Precious’ Legacy has travelled far wider, which in my eyes is very special!

Please God we will all be able to gather safely in Meelin and Rockchapel for our Twomey Family Remorial in 2022, but I do suspect after this we will always include a virtual aspect to our weekend events.


Owing to all these amazing people joining in, a nice idea has become a powerful achievement, thanks to their support! It is one we will treasure!!!”
