With Deepest Regret ...
It is with the heaviest of hearts that we announce the passing of our dear brother, Kilian McKenna.
He was the second son of our parents TP & May McKenna and died unexpectedly at his home in London aged just 54.
He had followed his father into the acting profession gaining his training in seasons with the National Youth Theatre and at the Royal Academy of Dramatic Art. In his professional career he made appearances with the Royal Shakespeare Company and the National Theatre along with a host of television, film and radio dramas.
He was gifted with a dynamic intellect and held a great passion for literature and history.
With a vibrant and charismatic presence he invariably made a lasting impression on all who met him.
Kilian will be sorely missed by us along with his friends and his larger family.
Rafe, Breffni, Stephen & Sally.
'Our revels now are ended'
Our revels now are ended. These our actors, As I foretold you, were all spirits and Are melted into air, into thin air: And, like the baseless fabric of this vision, The cloud-capp'd towers, the gorgeous palaces, The solemn temples, the great globe itself, Yea, all which it inherit, shall dissolve And, like this insubstantial pageant faded, Leave not a rack behind. We are such stuff As dreams are made on, and our little life Is rounded with a sleep. William Shakespeare From The Tempest, Act 4 Scene 1
