Patrick Joe Wallace RIP.
The passing of Patrick Joe Wallace, Ballyhubert, Scramogue recently caused deep regret throughout the region. Affectionely known as Packie Joe to his family and friends his passing at an advanced age caused widespread sorrow. Packie Joe was a man who loved to meet and greet neighbours. He was an outstanding neighbour, always on hand to help out. He loved working on his own modest farm and was well versed on agricultural matters. As well as a great conversationalist, Packie Joe was a great man to tell a story and was always good humoured. A loving husband and father and grandfather, he will be very much missed by Marian, Teresa and Claire and Sean but most of all he will be so missed by his wife Mai who looked after him so so well, particularly in recent times as his health deteriorated. Mai was always there to ensure Packie Joe was looked after the very best. Packie Joe adored all his grandchildren and they him. Packie is also survived by his sisters, Beatrice Coyle, Roscommon town and Annie Coyle. Large crowds called to the Wallace home to pay their final respects to Packie. Large crowds attended the removal and funeral where Fr. Eamon Oâ€™Connor PP officiated. May Packie Joe rest in peace.
