The death occurred at his home in Cloncovid recently of Eddie O’Reilly. Deceased who had been in poor health for some time was aged 70 and passed away peacefully in the presence of his devoted family. He was one of a family of 17 of the late John (Johnny) & Kathleen O’Reilly of Cartronfree and was predeceased by his brother Tommie some years ago. Like many of his generation he emigrated to England while still young and worked in both London and Birmingham as a crane driver and returned home with his family a few years ago and settled in Cloncovid. He is survived by his loving wife Kathleen, sons and daughter, grandchildren and great-grand children, brothers, sisters, extended family, relatives and friends to whom we extend our sincere sympathy. Funeral Mass in Our Lady of Lourdes Church, Mullahoran on Friday 23rd was celebrated by Canon Owen Devaney, P.P. assisted by Fr. Michael Campbell, Abbeylara and burial took place to local cemetery. May he rest in peace.

Following last week’s defeat by Ramor, a much improved performance by the senior team secured a vital win on Sunday last. The lunch-time game against Redhills in Ballinagh drew a large crowd with both sets of supporters in full voice as the game ebbed and flowed with a place in the next round at stake. Leading at half time by 0-6 to 0-3 the lads looked more confident on resumption and finished strongly to win 0-11 to 0-8.
