ESTHER MCGARRY: It was with deep regret we learned of the death of Esther McGarry late of Hyde Tce Mohil and Ennniscrone Co Sligo who died last week. She was a very caring kind lady who was much loved by the many friends she met during her life’s journey. She died as she lived with dignity. The vrry large attendance at her requiem mass here in St Patricks Church which was a celebration of Esthers life at which the beautiful music and singing added to the solemnity of this sad occasion was indeed testimony to the high esteem in which she,her brothers sisters and their extended families were held in the community and to whom we offer our deepest sympathy. Our sympathy is also to her friends in Enniscrone and all who mourn Esther at this sad time.
