Broadcaster and fashion designer Brendan Courtney has tweeted a moving tribute to his father who passed away yesterday.
Frank Courtney, 75, passed away at Our Lady's Hospice in Harold's Cross on Wednesday morning.
It is with great sorrow that we announce the passing of our Dad Frank. He passed away peacefully this morning, details rip.ie pic.twitter.com/Hjzbonri92— Brendan Courtney (@BrendanCourtney) June 7, 2017
Frank was the focus of a documentary, made by Brendan, called 'We Need to Talk about Dad', which looked at the family's struggle to provide the best care for their father following his stroke.
One of the topics addressed was the lack of options for State-subsidised home care.
The documentary received hugely positive feedback on social media.
