R.I.P. Shane McEntee

All of us at Irish Fest are saddened to learn today of the sudden passing of Shane McEntee, Minister of State at the Department of Agriculture in Ireland.

Minister McEntee was our honored guest at Irish Fest with this year and he was a gracious, exceedingly pleasant and personable man. He was very enthusiastic about both Kansas City and Irish Fest and we were looking forward to a long friendship.

Minister McEntee leaves a wife and three children. He was 56. Our deepest condolences to the McEntee family on this sudden and tragic loss.

It was such a privilege and a pleasure to be able to introduce Minister Shane McEntee to Kansas City's Irish community and its best celebration. We've lost a newly found friend.
