There was a deep sense of sadness in the area as word spread of the passing of Declan Killian. Declan had suffered poor health for many years but didn’t let it become who he was. When he was well, himself and his trusted dog companion could be seen driving around but definitely never breaking the speed limit. Declan was a very laid-back person and made himself at home wherever he went. He will be sadly missed by his sisters Deirdre, Rosaleen and Geraldine, brother - in - law Gerry, nephews and nieces, many cousins relatives and friends to whom we offer deepest sympathy. Declan’s funeral was on Thursday last in St Patricks Church, Killashee followed by cremation. May his soul rest in Peace.
The wedding of Alan Milton, son of Marie and Frank, Clondra and Lisa Marie Howley took place on 1st January in the Church of Christ the King,
Knockmore, Co. Mayo. The beautiful bride was attended by Shauna Howley, (chief bridesmaid), Yvonne Kelly and Ciara Kelly. Best man was Trevor Milton and groomsmen were Derek Milton and Bobby Farrell. Following the marriage ceremony which was celebrated by Fr. Padraig
Costello, the happy couple were joined by family and friends in Knockranny House, Westport, where they enjoyed a wonderful day and night of festivities. We wish Alan and Lisa Marie long life and happiness together.
