As a mark of respect the DFI main office will be closed to the public on Thursday 29th September due to the Passing of our colleague Michael Corbett
It is with deep sadness that I inform you that our colleague Michael Corbett passed away on Sunday morning 25th September at home.
Mike worked for DFI since 2002 as a Support Officer / Development Manager. Prior to that he worked with Mayo CIL.
When Mike was younger he experienced a spinal injury. He worked relentlessly to improve equality and inclusion for people with disabilities in Ireland. He was a greatly valued and insightful member of our team and respected across the disability movement.
His wit and good nature will be dearly missed.
All in DFI, board, staff and volunteers extend our heartfelt sympathy to his family and friends.
8 Acres Grove, Mulranny Road, Newport and formerly Main Street.
Reposing at his residence on Wednesday from 3 o'clock until 9 o'clock.
Removal on Thursday morning to St. Patrick's Church, Newport arriving at 11:30 for Mass at 12 o'clock with the funeral proceedings to Burrishoole Cemetery.
House private on Thursday morning please.
