A family run business

O’Horas Funeral Directors prides itself as a respected funeral specialist serving County Mayo for over 65 years.

Since 1952

Aiden O’Hora started the business at Carrowkeel, Bohola Co. Mayo in 1952 from a granary at the rear of the family home, hiring out a hearse from Jimmy Doherty, Straid or Micháel Campbell, Swinford. Removals were from the home or from the mortuary at hospitals in Swinford or from County hospital, Castlebar.

 

Aiden married May Boyle in 1956 and the family business ran from the same address until they bought the Lucky Star & the Congo Bar in Kiltimagh in 1976 which extended the business into Kiltimagh. Marty (Aiden’s eldest son) joined the bar business in 1976 on a fulltime basis. Marty and his two brothers and three sisters had all worked in the renamed bar now The Coillte Room.

 

In 2002 Aiden opened the funeral home next door to the bar formally Forde’s Drapery Shop, later Brendan Kelly’s Bookie Shop to a new look funeral home. Aiden retired from the bar trade at Christmas 1995 and Marty took over the bar.

Marty’s wife, Marie, worked for Baxter Healthcare at Swinford & Castlebar. They married on the 1st of March 1980 and have three children Rachel, Denise and Eamon. Marie joined Marty in the bar and refurbished it in Spring 1996 and opened as Teach O Hora on the 8th March 1996.

 

Marty worked with Aiden in the funeral business and took over the running of the business in 2005, continuing the bar and undertaking from Main St. Kiltimagh, this family run business is 65 years in existence.

Ever mindful of how difficult it is for a family to entrust the care of the departed loved ones during this time of intense grief, we at O’Hora Funeral Directors aim to provide a service stamped with all the expertise, skill and professional care that will comfort the family, alleviate the stress and pain a respectful tribute to the departed.
