There was widespread shock and sadness over the entire locality when the news of the very sudden and unexpected death of Liam Murphy of Coolnahinch began to filter through last Friday April 28th. Liam who was in his eighty fourth year was in reasonably good health up to his demise on Thursday night. Friday morning he had been carrying on with running his farm on a limited basis up to his death. Liam lived in Coolnahinch all his life where he worked his farm with his late brother Dan. He was a very popular man in the locality down through his eighty plus years everybodys friend and nobodys enemy. He was a very keen farmer, a very good neighbour always ready to help out especially at community level, very generous in his support of voluntary efforts. He never travelled too far from home just a few drinks and a conversation in the local pubs in the village. We offer our sincere sympathy to his brother Vincent in England and to his sister Peggy Lennon Curracreehan, to his extended family nephews nieces grandnephews and grand nieces, cousins and neighbours. He will be removed to Saint Dominics church on this monday evening and buried in the family plot in kilcommock after eleven o’clock mass on Tuesday morning.
We also extend our sympathy to Kelly families and extended families of Abbeyderg on the death of their sister Patricia (Patsy) Kelly Phillips which occurred in Buckinghamshire in England. Patsy is the second youngest member of the Kelly family of Abbeysderg and had spent most of her adult life in England where she reared her family. She returned to live in her native Kenagh for a short period about eight years ago. To her brothers sisters brothers in law sisters in law nephews and nieces we offer our sympathy. She will be buried in England.
