O'Connor Bros. was established in 1887 in Blarney Street, Cork by Thomas F. O'Connor.

O'Connor Bros. opened the FIRST funeral home in Ireland in 1967.

Company description
The company moved their offices to 70 Shandon Street after the company was passed to John Francis and Thomas Finbarr O'Connor, (sons of the founder) and then subsequently to North Gate Bridge (where we are still located), under the ownership of T.Val O'Connor, (grandson of the founder).

J.Finbarr O'Connor, the present Managing Director, (Val's son) and Laura Humphries (nee O'Connor) (Val's Daughter) are the fourth generation of the family to work in the company.

In 2012 we marked 125 Years serving the people of Cork.

Terence O'Connor of Shandon Street joined us at North Gate Bridge in 2004 when he found it difficult to operate from his former premises, in the middle of Shandon Street, due to parking restrictions.

Other funeral businesses such as Frederick Bogan of Merchants Quay, R.Cronin & Sons of Sullivans Quay and Desmonds of Conway's Yard have merged with O'Connor Bros. Funeral Homes Ltd. over the years.

O'Connor Bros Funeral Homes is the innovator in the funeral industry and we are proud of the fact that we have given a continuous personal service since the company's inception over 125 years ago. (That's over a million hours of unbroken service to bereaved families.)

The Company has carried out the funeral arrangements of famous Corkonians such as Terence McSwiney, Tomás McCurtin, former Taoiseach Jack Jynch, Hugh Coveney, Gerald Goldberg and Bishops †Daniel Coughlan, †Cornelius Lucey and †Michael Murphy.

We are founder members of the Irish Association of Funeral Directors (I.A.F.D.) and are Members of the British Institute of Embalmers (B.I.E.) and the Professional Embalmers Association of Ireland (P.E.A.I.)
