The death occurred suddenly at her residence in Mullhuddart, Dublin of Annie Brady, late of Cloncovid, Kilcogy. Deceased who was in her late 80’s was a State Registered nurse and spent most of her professional life in the James Connolly Memorial Hospital, Blanchardstown where she was extremely popular with staff and patients alike. The funeral Mass was celebrated in Our Lady of Lourdes Church, Mullahoran and burial took place to local cemetery. We extend our sincere sympathy to her brother Eddie, Cloncovid, sisters Sr. Elizabeth, Ballymahon, Bridie in Crosskeys, Rose in Liverpool and Kathleen in Dublin, nieces and nephews and members of her large extended family circle. May she rest in peace.

Michael McCabe: There was much regret locally on the occasion of the death of Michael McCabe, Carrigan, Ballinagh which occurred at his residence on Friday last. Despite having been in poor health for some time his death has come as a great shock to his devoted wife Imelda, son Micheal, daughters Aileen and Madeline, brothers and sisters to whom we extend our sincere sympathy. Michael who was in his late 70’s was a highly respected member of the farming community and his passing will leave a void in the local community. May he rest in peace.

Memories of Albert: There has been many well deserved tributes paid to the late Taoiseach Albert Reynolds and the many references to his days as dance hall manager recalls dancing in the Lakeland in Mullingar or Cloudland in Rooskey or further afield if transport was available. However, one local resident recalls shopping in Longford one Saturday in early 1992 and having parked her car on Main St. returned some time later to discover that it had been towed away. Along with a number of other vehicles it had been brought to a garage in Newtownforbes as the street had been cleared for the homecoming of the new Taoiseach. Consternation followed and a fee of €45 was requested to redeem the vehicles, but fortunately, a priest who was in a hurry to get home to say evening Mass had the gates opened many hours later and the lady’s car was allowed out without paying the fine.
