Peter & Fidelma O'Brien

Cancer is a terrible illness, it shows no mercy and can strike upon anyone at any time. Sadly, cancer came knocking on Peter O’Brien’s door in April this year when he was unsuspectingly diagnosed with Stage 4 Oesophageal cancer which spread to the Liver. 

This news is was compounded by the fact that Peter’s wife Fidelma was diagnosed with metastatic breast cancer, which had spread to her bones only 22 months prior. Fidelma has shown great strength and positivity battling through her illness and is a tower of strength for the 4 kids during an extremely emotional and hard time for the family.

On the 20th of September 2020, after a strong fight, peacefully and surrounded by his loving family, Peter at the age of 49 passed away. He is deeply missed by his loving wife Fidelma and his four beautiful children Fiadh (7), Lorcan (9), Faye (17), Ava (19).
Being diagnosed with metastatic breast cancer is completely life-changing and then to lose your husband even more so. The overwhelming stress of not knowing your children's future while still undergoing treatment is a worry that, hopefully, we can somewhat alleviate for Fidelma. 

With your help and support, we can help make a difference in Ava, Faye, Lorcan & Fiadh’s lives.
We would like to say a heartfelt thank you for any support given.

    Peter helped fix my car many moons ago when I was on work experience in Symantec. He was a lovely man
