About


Gaynor's Funeral Directors

About 

Gaynor's are a third generation family-owned and operated funeral business which has been in operation for more than 100 years. Hugh Gaynor established the business in 1911and provided an efficient service to the community of Castlerea until his death in 1964.  His nephew Tommy Gaynor took over the business in 1965 and introduced many new features including the purchase of a premise on the Square which was renovated to become a funeral home.

His son Paul joined in 1996 after graduating from St. Nathy’s College and completing a two year course in undertaking and embalming in O’Connor’s of Cork. Paul’s wife Susan joined the business in 2001 and works alongside her husband and father-in-law to this day. They completed an intensive refurbishment of the funeral home in the late 2000’s and brought it in to line with present day funeral requirements. The newly refurbished funeral home provides a comfortable and tasteful environment in which to arrange/conduct a funeral.

A second funeral home was opened in Ballinlough Village in 2017 to cater for the needs of the people of Ballinlough Village and the surrounding areas. 

"Our commitment is to personally serve bereaved families in Castlerea and the surrounding areas in a dignified and professional manner. We believe in a flexible, sincere and affordable service and we are fully dedicated to achieving this. We have vast experience in funeral, burial, cremation, repatriation and exhumation services and make every effort to follow the rituals and beliefs of all religions. We provide reassurance that the smallest detail will be attended to and that every individual requirement will be carried out in a dignified manner".
