Death of Patrick Kavanagh

In November 1967, the Abbey Theatre, under the direction of Thomas Mac Anna, staged 'Tarry Flynn' in Dundalk. While attending a performance of the play, Patrick Kavanagh fell ill. His sisters took him back to Mucker, Co. Monaghan for a couple of days until Katherine Kavanagh came to take him to Dublin.

Diagnosed with pneumonia, Kavanagh died on 30 November 1967, aged 63, in a Dublin nursing home. He was buried two days later in Inniskeen, Co. Monaghan.
