August 2022

With deep sadness we share that our colleague and friend Ciara Barry after a long hard battle passed away peacefully on August 13th 2022 at the Moffitt Cancer Centre, Tampa, Florida surrounded by her husband Patrick, father Pat (P.J.), sisters Laura, Aveen, Claire, Ellen and brother Patrick.

Ciara was a Senior Nurse in Coronary Care for many years in Tallaght University Hospital. She volunteered to help Dr. Deirdre Ward out in the CRYP Centre in early 2019 and joined the CRYP Centre team fulltime in late 2019.

After a long battle with childhood cancer and subsequent complications she was hoping to start a new chapter in her career with our new expanded service. She threw herself headlong into the new role and was a huge addition to our service – always cheerful, enthusiastic, empathic and meticulous in her work.

Ciara unfortunately suffered a further health setback around the beginning of the pandemic. Nevertheless, she worked from home for several months – she pioneered the development of meaningful telephone consultations which we have retained as an important part of our clinical service that will continue long after the pandemic.

We all hoped that Ciara’s last heroic effort to find a treatment that would give her more time, if not cure, in the USA over the summer. It was testament to Ciara’s unique personality that so many people supported her travel to Tampa, Unfortunately, the pioneering treatment was unsuccessful and Ciara passed away peacefully on August 13. RIP.

When Jonathan Ireland and Kevin Fegan set up The Concentio Chamber Choir at Queen’s University Belfast in 2005, the friends could have never predicted that just five short years later, Kevin would lose his life to Sudden Cardiac Death at the age of 24.

Now Director of the Choir and a Trustee of CRY Ireland, Jonathan is using his musical talent to honour his late friend and shine some light on SCD with the release of Stand By Me.

The song was picked because it essentially describes what we do – stand by families in their darkest hour. Due to the pandemic, this was recorded virtually in the singers own homes – 30 singers based all around Europe – many of whom were close friends of Kevin.

Huge thanks to Jonathan and the Concentio Chamber Choir.
