Sadness at passing of former Athlone mayor

The funeral Mass has taken place of former Athlone mayor Brendan McFadden, who died suddenly on Monday at the age of 82. Mr McFadden, who was a public representative in Athlone from 1979-2003, was laid to rest yesterday at Coosan Cemetery following a funeral Mass at the Church of Saints Peter and Paul.

He is father of Fine Gael TD for Longford/Westmeath, Nicky McFadden, and the current mayor of Athlone, Gabrielle McFadden.

Mr McFadden was first elected to Westmeath County Council in 1979, and served as a councillor until he retired in 2003 and his daughter Nicky was co-opted in his place. He was a native of Dunard, The Batteries, Athlone, and a former ESB employee.

He was predeceased by his wife Kitty.

He is sadly missed by his loving daughters Nicky, Gabrielle, and Aine; sister Baba; grandchildren Caren, Eoin, Katie, and Luke; great-grandchild Matilda; son-in-law Brian; relatives, neighbours, and friends.
