Geraldine Donohoe sent us this message today : Nancy Gillespie has asked me if you would kindly post on the Plein Air Sites that she would like to sincerely thank everyone from the Plein Air community who sent wonderful messages of condolence and support and all who were in attendance at Terence's Funeral Service. Nancy would also like a special thank you to Michael Keogh for organising the Paint Out in The National Stud in Terence's memory and to all who participated.

Terence is very fondly remembered by myself and others in the Boyne Valley Group.  A truly lovely gentle gentleman, who loved painting and company.  My sympathy to his wife and family.

Sad to report the news that our friend Terence Gillespie died in hospital on Thursday. Living in Leighlinbridge, Co. Carlow, he sometimes would have painted with members for BVPE and Dublin PE.

He was a quiet man and a true gentleman who loved company and painting and he will be greatly missed by all who knew him and especially his dear wife, Nancy. 

Terence's funeral service in celebration of his life will be held in St Laserian's Cathedral, Old Leighlin, Co. Carlow. Wednesday 28th at 12pm. 

No Flowers, donations to Medecins Sans Frontiers.
