Death of solicitor Vicky McCarthy Keane

Solicitor Vicky McCarthy Keane, who had been battling motor neurone disease (MND), has died.

She passed away on 28 December, and her funeral Mass took place in St Joseph’s Church, Rathwire, Co Westmeath on Monday.

Originally from Limerick, she studied law at the University of Limerick.

She was apprenticed at David Brophy Solicitors in Limerick city, and was enrolled as a solicitor in Easter 1999.

‘Tangible legacy’

Vicky McCathy Keane was diagnosed with MND in 2017, and spoke to the Gazette early last year about how she had coped with the disease.

In November 2021, the solicitor published a book of poetry, Through My Eyes, which she described as a way of leaving a “tangible legacy” to her husband, Michael, and their four children.

All proceeds went to the Irish Motor Neurone Disease Association (IMNDA).
