J & M Hawe Funeral Directors

We are delighted to have acquired J & M Hawe Funeral Directors from John and Mary Hawe at the Old Creamery, Bakers Road, Charleville in November, 2022.

John’s father worked as a Funeral Director for many years in and around the Charleville area and John joined when old enough to assist.

John and Mary acquired the Old Creamery building and converted it into a Funeral home in 1987, running the Funeral home and serving the local community for many years until their well earned retirement.  

We will work with John to continue his family legacy and to continue to serve the local community in this historic building.


Please see the photographs on this page for a taste of the use of the building in the late 19th century.

Creameries like this developed across Ireland in the late 19th century to accommodate the new technology of large scale separation of milk for making butter in commercial quantities. It later operated as the ‘Blarney’ cheese manufacturing facility for Golden Vale Food Products Coop, now part of Kerry Group Plc., which was exported to the USA.
