Our best friend and first official stage manager of The New Theatre and current board member, Fiona Hurley has passed away peacefully. She was 43 years old.
She joined The New Theatre in late 1999 and was the most uniquely talented, kindest, most helpful person we have ever worked alongside.
A born leader and peacemaker.
We are heartbroken and send love to her amazing mother Evelyn, her family and friends.

Fiona Hurley passed away March 28th, 2021, peacefully, at home, surrounded by her loving family – Evelyn and the late Des and the loving sister of Des, Lisa, David and Brian. Sadly missed by her loving mam, sister, brothers, uncles, aunties, nieces, nephews, brother-in-law, sisters-in-law and her many colleagues and friends in The New Theatre, RTE and the Dog World.

We pulled together a few film clips of her theatre days with us for you to get a glimpse of an incredibly gracious person.

Fiona’s Funeral Mass may be viewed, and personal message of condolence to the Hurley family may be placed in CONDOLENCES below at rip.ie
Donations, if desired, to St Francis Hospice
