THE funeral arrangements for the late Harry Bartlett, a great all-round sportsman who was hugely popular in his native Killarney, have been announced.

Harry, a prominent GAA referee, graced the fields of play with Dr Crokes and Killarney Celtic and took to the water with Workmen’s Rowing Club during his very active playing days and he later served all the clubs he was involved with in a number of administrative positions.

He passed away, suddenly but peacefully, at his home in Woodawn Park early on Wednesday.

Harry, who recently turned 60, is survived by his wife Ann, (née Corkery from Killorglin), and their children Christina, Sandra, John and Chloe.

He was a loving grandfather to Leah, Hannah, James, Jack and Harry and he is further survived by his sons-in-law, Patrick Farrell and Ricky O’Rourke, John’s partner Natalie Glenn, his sisters Noreen, Phil, Ger and Anne, brothers-in-law, sisters-in-law, nieces and nephews, many other relatives and great friends.

Harry was predeceased by his parents Hanna and Johnny, from Marian Terrace, and his brother, Tim, from Coolgreane Park.

In accordance with Government and HSE guidelines, and in the interest of public health, a private funeral will take place for Harry on next Monday morning in St Mary’s Cathedral. The Requiem Mass will be live streamed on Killarneyparish.com at 10.30am and those who wish to leave messages of condolences can do so on RIP.ie.
