BRITTON – It is with profound sadness that we announce the death of Pat Britton, Donegal Town, originally from Ballyshannon. Pat passed away peacefully, with family by his side, after a hard fought battle with cancer. Beloved husband to Mary (his current wife as he would call her for the past 50+ years), worshiped father to Tara (Scott), Greg (Lynsey), Nikola (Jamie) and Lynette (David), doted grandfather to ten wonderfully behaved grandchildren. Pre-deceased by his parents Pat and Una Britton and brother Ernan.

Pat leaves behind a legacy within Donegal Town and beyond. Founder and master of Britton Insurance, which recently celebrated fifty years in business; community focused, Pat was a true gent whether from behind a desk or at his bar stool in various fine establishments throughout Donegal Town. Pat has had many passions throughout his life, Donegal being a major part of it. An avid philanthropist, Pat also loved show jumping, running, rowing, rugby, golf – basically, if he could support sport and local clubs he was on board. He will be greatly missed by family, friends, his staff, colleagues and many acquaintances he made throughout his 70+ years. He was loved and will be truly remembered by all.

May he Rest In Peace


His remains will repose at Gallagher’s Funeral Home, Station Road, Mountcharles, (eircode F94 WN24) on Saturday, 10th September from 2 pm until 6 pm. Removal from there on Sunday morning, travelling via his business premises on Tirchonaill St. Donegal Town, going to St. Mary’s Church, Killymard for 11 am funeral Mass, with burial afterwards in the local cemetery. House strictly private, please.

Rest In Peace and cheers to Pat!
