Described on the funeral notice as ‘the last of the Duff family’, a first cousin of Legion Founder, Frank Duff, died on Sunday 2nd April 2017 at Connolly Hospital, Blanchardstown, County Dublin having been removed from Millbury Nursing Home, Navan, where she had spent the last few years. She was aged 93 years. Having wide Legion experience and a fluent knowledge of French she undertook correspondence on behalf of Concilium with Councils in French-speaking areas of the world, notably French-Canada and also more remote territories, making a valuable contribution during her life to the Legion.
Carmel’s funeral Mass was celebrated in St. Cuthbert’s Church Boyerstown, Navan on Tuesday 4th April in a packed Church. The Celebrant availed of the occasion to sing the praise of the Legion worldwide, but especially in China and in his own parish of Boyerstown.

Quote of the Day
In the very many talks he gave during his lifetime, right up to shortly before his death in 1980, a theme he returned to often was that of the Blessed Virgin Mary.

He had studied everything written about her that he could get hold of. Not content with that he enriched us in those talks by sharing his knowledge with us, most especially the role she plays in bringing us to her Son.

Indeed a couple of his talks on Our Blessed Lady, I believe, give an insight into Our Lady as yet not fully realised by the Church at large. Such was the intimacy, knowledge and love he had of her.
