P&B Heaney Funeral Directors - Established in 1974

In 1974, Patsy Heaney alongside his brother Brendan established the firm of P & B Heaney, after the purchase of a hearse to compliment their already prominent taxi business. Cultivating a reputation for the utmost discretion, compassion and sensitivity, the two brothers stood side by side for almost three decades in conducting traditional and tasteful memorial services at what was a challenging time for all in this part of the world.

Brendan’s untimely passing in 2005 saw a refocusing inside the walls of the business, but whilst personnel began slowly to change with the dictation of time, the Heaney named continued to be synonymous with providing poise and virtue for many final journeys.  

After almost half a century, the business continues to flourish today in Patrick Street under the direction of Patsy's granddaughter Patricia and his son Ciaran. The incorporation of Keenan’s Funeral Directors in Banbridge in 2001 allowed us to be able to expand the width of our services, along with purchasing a funeral parlour in the Costa Del Sol region of Spain.

From those humble beginnings in Cornmarket, Patsy lived long enough to see sons Ciaran and Declan and granddaughter Patricia step forward into service under the family name, something which gave him an unerring quiet pride. 

At Heaney Keenan Funeral Directors, Patsy & Brendan’s quiet pride in providing service in other’s greatest time of need remains.
