A COLLAGE of photos will hang just inside the door of the new Palliative Care Unit to remember the man who did so much to make the facility possible.

Ted Moynihan passed away in February of 2018, but he lived to see the Palliative Care Unit officially opened in September of 2017 and photos were taken by Domnick Walsh to capture the historic day.

Before he passed away, Ted sat down with Kerry Hospice committee members to select Domnick’s photos from the opening to hang on the walls inside the main door.

“When we built the day unit we did the same thing with photos from the signing of the contracts right up to the opening [in 2007] hanging inside the door,” said Dr Patricia Sheahan. It was decided to do the same thing for the new unit.

“It brings back memories of a very happy day. A lot of people join and leave charities, but Ted was ‘Mr Hospice’. He was the one who was the inspiration to bring everyone together to keep the the whole county focussed towards that one goal,” said Dr Sheahan.

Ted’s wife Breda and son Simon were there to see the photos being hung.

“I’m proud that Ted is being honoured in this way. He did so much and the Kerry Hospice was primary to him over the years,” said Breda.
