SYMPATHY: Sympathy of the community is extended to Mrs Angela Walsh Drumheel Ballinagh on the death of her father Mr James (Jim) Wray Moynehall whose funeral which was large and representative and a fitting tribute to the esteem of which the deceased and his family are held throughout the region took place following con-celebrated mass in the Cathedral of SS Patrick and Felim to Killgarry cemetery.

MR PATRICK DALY: There was widespread regret throughout his native Ballinagh and surrounding district with the news of the death in England following a brief illness and at a comparatively early age of Mr Patrick Daly formerly of Cavan Road, Ballinagh. Son of the late James and Elizabeth Daly Cavan Road Ballinagh Patrick was a member of a highly respected family and as a young man was extremely popular within the community. At an early age he moved to England where he established a highly successful business and soon became as popular in the land of his adoption as he had been in his native Ballinagh. His passing is widely mourned. He is survived by his wife ,family , brothers sisters nephews nieces and a wide family circle to whom I extend the sympathy of our community. May his soul rest in peace.
