Mark O'Sullivan's life was 'full of possibilities', Kanturk mourners told

Mourners have heard how Mark O’Sullivan “touched many people’s lives” throughout his life.

The funeral mass of the late Mark O’Sullivan took place today in the Church of the Immaculate Conception, Kanturk.

Parish Priest Fr Toby Bluitt spoke of how Mark’s life was so “full of possibilities” and said that he “was highly thought of.” 

Mark attended school in Ballyhass and Kanturk like his younger brother Diarmuid.

He was a trainee solicitor preparing to complete his final exams.

In his homily Fr Bluitt chose to “reiterate the words of the homily from yesterday because the reality of this heartbreaking loss has not changed.” Fr Bluitt spoke to the mourners gathered in the church: “His life and death have changed you all and you will never be the same again.

“So today, gathered together in our grief, we do not minimise the loss of these three lives by trying to provide easy answers.

“Because there are no answers,” he said.

In accordance with current public health restrictions, Mark’s Funeral Mass took place privately involving family members only.

His brother Diarmuid and father Tadg were buried yesterday in St Brigid's Cemetery, Castlemagner.

Mark’s body was discovered in a bedroom of the family home on Monday afternoon, while Diarmuid was found dead alongside his father Tadg in a field 500m away from the family home on the same day.

The three men died in what was understood to be a murder-suicide caused by a dispute over an inheritance.
