The Marie Keating Foundation are deeply saddened by the passing of Desmond (Des) McGuigan.

We are deeply saddened to hear of the passing of Desmond(Des) McGuigan.

Des was one of our wonderful Heroes of Hope in 2016, our first campaign focused on men’s health for Blue September and Eva his loving wife a special friend to Helen our Director of Nursing Services. Des was such a gentleman and so supportive to the cause, giving up his time and sharing his own personal story to help others, bringing comfort and hope. He will be missed by all who knew him in the Marie Keating Foundation.


Our thoughts and prayers are with his beloved wife Eva and son Aindriú, his dear sister Ann, brother Kevin, sisters-in-law, brothers-in-law, nieces, nephews, extended family, friends and neighbours.


May his gentle soul Rest in Peace.
