Teenagh Cunningham

It is with deep regret that we announce

the passing of our dear friend and colleague Teenagh Cunningham who passed away on Friday August 21st after a short illness. Teenagh’s enthusiasm knew no bounds and she will be dearly missed by all who were fortunate to know her.

Teenagh joined Baboró in 2006 when she moved to Galway after several years in Kilkenny. She embraced the city with open arms and we counted ourselves lucky to have found someone with such dedication, skill and tenacity to champion Baboró’s cause. Teenagh’s legacy will live on – she worked tirelessly and passionately for the rights of children in our community to have access to the arts through the annual Baboró Festival and outreach school projects such as BEAST!

Teenagh will be dearly missed by all of us here at Baboró, and by her many friends and colleagues in the arts community both here in Galway, around the country and internationally. Thank you Teenagh for your inspirational commitment, your wonderful laughter and most of all for your friendship.

Our thoughts and deepest condolences are with Teenagh’s parents, sisters, brothers and her extended family. As a mark of respect Baboró’s offices will remain closed on Tuesday 25th August 2015.

Funeral arrangements are as follows:

Reposing at the O’ Flaherty Funeral Parlour, Munster Avenue, Galway on Monday 24th August from 5.00 p.m. to 7.00 p.m. Removal on Tuesday 25th August to Mount Jerome Crematorium, Harolds Cross, Dublin to arrive for 2.00 p.m. Cremation to follow.
