Our dear friend Karl Fitzgerald passed away in the early morning of Sunday the 20th of November. He died peacefully in his sleep. Karl was a founding member of Camphill Jerpoint since April 1992 and was a few days short of his 64th birthday. Karl was a practicing artist and an integral member of the KCAT Studio. Karl enjoyed life and we are glad he brought this joy to KCAT for many years. We will miss his friendship, sense of humour, his dedication to his art and that smile!
