In Honour Of Frankie ( Francis ) Dunne

Frankie was a Father, Grandfather, Brother, Uncle and Nephew and friend to many in Cork. He had succumbed to a life of alcohol dependence many years ago, he lost a lot in his life , but he never lost his families support or love. Every member of his family and large circle of friends at some point through the years have held him up, fed him, or sometimes just sat with him listening to his rambling chat or singing of rebel songs and just fall asleep. That was simply him; a kind gentle man but yes, an alcoholic. He had another family that he loved too, that family were his friends living in tents, homeless shelters or on the streets of his City, CORK. They were their own community of friends and comrades but without a front door of their own or even a mattress to lay down on at times, people whom an empty derelict house seemed like a safe place to have few drinks, a sing song and lay down out of cold. As Frankie's family we hope no else ever has to suffer the horrendous nightmare of what Frankie endured in the final hours of his life. No-one should be left so vulnerable on our streets. No-one should be beaten or murdered because they find themselves helpless due to alcoholism or for any other reason. As a thank you to the amazing work of the Simon community us as a family are hoping people will help us in our donation plea to people who were Frankie’s ‘other’ family. Please give what you can. Every Penny counts. ALL The monies raised will go directly to Cork Simon Community and also Caring for corks homeless group We would like to take this opportunity to thank each and every person who has been a pillar of support for our family at this horrendous time Thank you so much for your kindness The Dunne family xx
