Paul Harmey, Teacher 1968-2005 -

The Union was deeply saddened to learn of the passing of Paul Harmey, a Teacher in the College 1968-2005. Paul was made an honorary member of the Union in 2017, in recognition of at least ten years SVC service.

HARMEY, (Celbridge, Co. Kildare, formerly of Crumlin, Dublin 12 and St. Vincent’s College, Castleknock, Dublin) May 31st, 2020 (very peacefully) at home. Paul, anam cara and beloved husband for 54 years of Nuala, greatly loved Dad of Dympna and Sinead and father-in-law of Paul Kenny and Chris Murphy. Very proud grandfather of Conor, Ronan and Mimi. Paul will be forever loved and missed by them. Sadly missed also by his brothers Matt and Paddy, sister Hester, extended family, former colleagues, neighbours and a very wide circle of incredibly supportive friends.


Due to Government advice and restrictions regarding public gatherings and to protect our most vulnerable friends, a private family funeral will take place. We look forward to meeting everyone at a Celebration of Paul’s kind and wonderful life at a later date. People who would like to pay their respects to Paul may do so on Wednesday morning, June 3rd, at 11:30 am as Paul makes his way to the Church, from his home, via the Hazelhatch Road, or you may join the family’s private funeral service remotely by webcam by following the link HERE (and selecting “Main Camera”) from 12 noon.

Those who would have liked to attend Paul’s funeral, but due to current restrictions cannot, may leave your personal messages for the family by selecting “Condolences” below or alternatively at

Family flowers only please, donations, if desired, to the Friend’s of St. Brigid’s Hospice and Homecare Services, The Curragh, Co. Kildare.
