"My dear beautiful wife Ger, R.I.P. passed away on April 14th 2020. Just to make sure I was not wearing sun tinted glasses I discussed the content of this review with my family, Sineád and Ian in Ireland, Ross in London and Aoife in New Jersey. I can honestly say that it was the nearest thing to perfection that I could have imagined. My background is in administration and all my life I have been, much to the annoyance of various people trying to cross all my T's and dot all my I's, so if I can be permitted on this occasion to say a recommendation from me is rare. Ger had a little set back some weeks before she died and reluctantly I was forced to look over the fence. I was very worried and confused with too many balls in the air as they say. I called to Seán Feehily Funeral Directors and spoke to Susan Cox. Needless to say I found Susan very understanding and knowledgeable and completely put my mind at ease. She took me through everything from beginning to end. Alas shortly after that meeting Ger died and everything went very smoothly as expected. We have received constant feedback as a family on the whole Funeral from start to finish, especially the Mass starting with Ian's few words which painted a very accurate picture of Ger's life, Ross and Aoife's tribute recordings, Fr. Michael Drumm's well chosen words and Joy Feehily's beautiful singing. Our sincere thanks to Seán, Susan, Brendan and all the team at Seán Feehily's Funeral Directors. "

"Thank you Sean for your attention to detail for my mum Kathleen McGlinchey. We were all minded from a distance and every detail was taken care of. She would have been very proud of you all on that day. Your kind, unassuming and compassionate manner helped us all follow through on her wishes. This was particularly relevant as she had already discussed and prepaid her funeral many years previously. Thanks again."

Your attention to detail was excellent. Thanks for being so good to all the troops, for making your Funeral Home available before and after the burial for the band to change their clothes.

"In attending funeral of Oliver McLoughlin, RIP., in Strandhill, Co. Sligo, one had to be impressed with Seán Feehily Funeral Directors attention to detail and superb overall service. This was evident in provision of water / tissues in chief mourners pews and management of sympathisers throughout the Funeral arrangements."
"On behalf of the late Tom "Boysie" Mitchell, I would like to extend the Mitchell family's sincere thanks to Seán and his excellent team. Nothing was a problem and everything was covered for us even down to collecting all the flower cards, books of condolence, mass booklets and photocopying them so his family in England could receive a bound copy of all as a keepsake. A truly professional service that simplified a challenging time for the family. Thank you."

"After the tragic loss of my Mother earlier this year we turned to Seán and the team at Feehily's to arrange the funeral. In spite of the difficult time and short notice, we cannot thank them enough for their sincere help and genuine expertise. From start to finish they provided us with their deeply professional services. In times of grief they provide all the compassion, advice and experience needed to take all the stress out of arranging everything. I remain impressed to how much insight and knowledge was shown when arranging many aspects of the whole affair. I cannot recommend their services enough and I would like to thank Seán, his family and all the staff for making those days so much easier for us and the family; it will not be forgotten. "

"With care and consideration is their byword. "
"A huge thank you to Sean and his team for arranging our mother Mary Ryan's funeral so quietly, respectfully and efficiently. It was such a relief to have such experienced professionals arrange everything. Though the rain poured relentlessly down in the graveyard, we were sheltered under umbrellas and a canopy. Nothing was too much trouble, nothing forgotten. We greatly appreciate your hard work. "
"Our dearest Mary O’Flaherty passed away after a very short illness on 21/8/17. Even though she was very ill our dear mother gave strict instruction, to use the services of Sean Feehily, Funeral Directors, Feehily's Funeral Home, Cartron Cross, Sligo. From the very first phone call, Sean and his team took care of everything and guided us in making decisions and offering advice in a kind and professional manner. Brendan, drove Mary’s remains from Harold’s Cross Hospice back home to Sligo and even brought the rose that we put in her hand when she passed away. The removal took place in the funeral home of Sean Feehily Undertakers, at Cartron Cross, Sligo and exceptional large crowds queued in heavy rainfall, to say their final goodbyes to our dearest mother. The following day the funeral took place, it was so personable and dignified, Sean and Brendan gave the send off that our proud mother so much deserved which included tissues, water both in the funeral home, church and the funeral car. Umbrellas and shelter were provided at the graveside, even though the sun shone through. In our opinion Sean, Brendan and his team outdid themselves in showing kindness and professionalism in everything they did with attention to detail, even as much as Brendan driving us to our first family home in Lyndale. We would strongly advise people to use Sean Feehily and his team in the event of bereavement. We will always remember them for their kindness and outstanding professionalism, shown to us in making our saddest day so perfect and memorable. "

"Our beloved father died suddenly on a Thursday in August 2017 and required a four day wake and funeral due to the inability to have a Sunday Funeral Mass in the local Church. Seán Feehily, Funeral Directors, took control in an amazing fashion. So respectful, sensitive and accommodating at such a difficult time. With so many changing plans and last minute updates, they worked seamlessly to minimise our distress. We combined the wake between our home and the Funeral Home, which we thought would cause lots of issues, but the Feehily's team assured us, that there would be no problem with our requests. Our whole family would like to thank Seán Feehily and also extend a special thank you to team member Brendan McNiffe for his empathy, guidance and the little personal touches that were not fully acknowledged at the time. Seán Feehily Funeral Directors and Feehily's Funeral Home, provide a five star professional service. I speak for all our family when I say, we highly recommend the service to anyone at such a difficult time, as at the death of a loved one. "
Saint Anne's, Sligo.
"I wanted to thank you very much for your professionalism and empathy last week while burying my Aunt Jean Burke. Your handling of the situation did not go unnoticed and everyone commented on how nice you all were, and knew exactly what to do to make the day as easy as possible on all of us. From your perfect timing with the umbrellas, to the placement of the chairs, to helping people into the church, the loudspeaker, driving my dad back from the church after he left his car there and especially holding the umbrella over the Dean while getting soaked yourself, but never flinching. It was a very hard day for all of us, but your team handled it all so perfectly. Thank you so much, Kate "
Bray, Co. Wicklow
"Recently We suffered the very sudden death of our sister and cousin Margaret. Rip There are no words to describe the support and help we received from Feehilys. Sean was available at all times to advice us and to ensure that Margaret received the diginified funeral she so deserved. He took care of all the arrangements both in Sligo and Roscommon and this was a tremendous help to the family. The funeral home was comfortable and a perfect setting for people to come and pay their respects and share memories. Brendan drove Margaret's remains back home to Roscommon and looked after the removal and burial. He was just so kind, professional and helpful and the family were so grateful that he was with us over the two days. We would strongly advice people to use Feehilys in an event of a bereavement. "
The Murray Family
"Our sister slipped away without warning on the last Sunday in April 2016. It was an earthquake for the many who loved her. During those grieving days the respectful and attentive presence of the staff in Feehilys was of incalculable benefit. Large crowds came to say their farewells in the funeral home, at Saint Anne's for the removal and the following day to the requiem mass and the burial at Sligo Cemetery. In our sadness, we were minded with such care - bottled water and tissues in the funeral home and church; umbrellas and a shelter from the elements at the graveside. Professionalism, patience and compassion come naturally to Sean, Catherine and their colleagues - we will always remember their kindness. Tommie (Mary and Michael) Gorman"
Lisheen, Strandhill. Co. Sligo
"We said goodbye to a special person yesterday. People came from all over Ireland, England and further. Ruth obviously touched many people's hearts and this was reflected in who came to say goodbye. Feehily's were amazing- respectful, kind and so perfect- I'm not sure if they had ever held a funeral quite like this- There were people of all nationalities, races, religion and sexual orientation at this funeral and it was held in a non-religious venue, without the usual tradition and process to guide them- They obviously listened to what Ruth's family wanted and got it right- down to guiding 6 women who had never carried a coffin before, with such gentleness and encouragement that we all felt we had carried her well and she would have been so proud of us. How they talked to a broken-hearted partner and young son was the saddest and most amazing thing I've experienced. Thank you Feehilys is all I can say."
"When my brother Joe passed away on August 27th 2016 it was one of the worst days of my life as he was my only brother and we had gone through so much together. Before Joe passed he had advised me to go to Sean Feehily and he was very clear about that, from when he was diagnosed of cancer two and half years ago. When my husband and daughter rang Sean and told him we were calling to him we presumed Joe had all sorted, but no, he gave me a challenge which I totally accepted. I will always remember walking in and meeting Sean we were heartbroken, however Sean was absolutely amazing and so professional . At such a hard time he made everything so easy, he just asked what Joe wanted and that was it, Joe was in safe hands. The removal and funeral took place and was so dignified, Sean and Brendan gave the send off that my brother Joe deserved and I know he would have been so proud of the professional behaviour of everyone involved. Thank you for all you have done and the way you treated me and my family, you made one of the hardest moments in my life easier to deal with."

"I didn't know where I was going to start in making the funeral arrangements. From the moment I made that first phone call to Seán I felt a great sense of relief. At a time of great sadness and also having to make a lot of decisions Seán and his team took care of everything in a very caring, kind and professional manner and with great attention to detail. "
Strandhill, Co. Sligo
"Mum Phyllis Brennan passed away on 27/09/2016. Sean and his team were exceptional. Everything was taken care of in such a caring and professional manner. Attention to detail was catered for to the highest standard. With renewed thanks. Siobhan Gilroy"

"My beloved Joe Martyn formally of Knappagh Rd. died unexpectedly abroad in Europe, September 2016 and I had, not only a funeral and cremation to organise from USA but the extra complication of getting my loved one's remains to Sligo. I was blown away by Seán's team. They answered every call within minutes, they took care of every single detail that needed sorting without adding any stress and were there at all times with advice, kindness, professionalism and care. They handled absolutely every single detail from collecting Joe at Dublin airport to bringing his ashes back to Sligo, after a Dublin cremation. It was really wonderful, during our time of grief to have this silent army , working quietly in the background making everything happen seamlessly. "
