Kieran Flannery, 95, of Glastonbury, died peacefully Friday, May 29, 2020 at home surrounded by his family. He was born September 10, 1924 in Creevagh and raised in Shannon Harbour, County Offaly Ireland, one of six children to the late Peter and Catherine (Daly) Flannery. Kieran came to America in 1957, residing in Hartford until 2007, when he relocated to Glastonbury and resided with his daughter Mary. Prior to his retirement he worked for the Hartford Board of Education at the Parkville Elementary School for twenty-three years and Mayflower Moving & Storage for twelve years. He was a joyful man who enjoyed dancing, Irish music and had a great love of sports. As a life-time member of the Irish American Home Society in Glastonbury he had many a happy Sunday watching the hurling and football matches broadcast from Ireland. He loved and will be dearly missed by his children; Kieran and Sherrilyn Flannery of Lebanon, CT, James Flannery of Houston, Texas and Annmaire Salvato Flannery of Westbrook, CT, Mary and Tim Callahan of Glastonbury, CT and Patricia and Christopher Mooney of Fairport, NY. He loved watching his twelve grandchildren grow which brought great joy to him: Shannon, Madeleine, Emerson, Nicole, Elizabeth, Briana, Noel, Declan, Aidan, Matthew, Jillian, and Lindsey. Kieran has a large extended family which includes nephews, nieces, and cousins in America and Ireland, whom he loved to visit with and have a chat. He is predeceased by his wife Lucy, brothers Patrick, James, & Joseph, sisters Rose & Mary, and granddaughter Roisin. The family would like to thank Ellen Gallagher Howlett for her gentle kindness and patience taking care of Kieran this past year.
Friends and relatives may pay their respects to Kieran and his family Monday, June 1, 2020 from 10-11am at Farley-Sullivan Funeral Home. A Committal Service will take place at 11:30AM in Holy Cross Cemetery, 17 Wickham Road, Glastonbury CT.

Good morning Keiran and Sherrilyn:
We were sorry to learn of your Dad's passing. Kathleen and I send our sympathy for your loss. I met your Dad at one of the great celebrations at your house, and I remember his bright eyes and quick smile that clearly showed what a joyful spirit he had. Please know we are thinking of you both.

From: PJ Johnson
It was with great sadness that I read about Kieran's death. Please accept my sincere condolences. I have very fond memories of Kieran and Lucy when we all lived in Hartford. Like Kieran, I and my family are from County Offaly and Kieran and Lucy as well as his brother Joe were dear friends of my parents, Paddy and Agnes Johnson. My dad used to babysit for Joe and Mary's three boys. Kieran taught my dad how to drive a standard shift 5 passenger volkswagen pickup truck, which was no small task. I rode along to listen and watch as my impatient dad had such a hard time on hills as he released the clutch. Kieran was eternally patient and after numerous lessons succeeded. Kiernan was such a calm and gentle soul who enjoyed a good laugh and a good story. I could go on but suffice it to say I have the fondest memories of those early times and and the joy Kieran and his dear Lucy brought into outlives. God bless and may he rest in peace! P.J. Johnson
