Death of John Kelly

There was a sense of disbelief and deep sadness in our entire area on Sunday morning when the news of the sudden and untimely death of John Kelly, Corracorka spread. John who appeared to be in the prime of his health even on the night before he died attending Mass. John or Johnny as he was affectionately known to many aquitted himself well at different jobs in his early life before moving back to his first love farming on the family farm in Corracorka. He was extremely popular in the community for his friendship kindness neighbourliness and ever availability to be of help to others. He was an excellent farmer in the traditional mould and had a great love of and way with animals. He was a great conversationalist and always made time for a chat. He will be greatly missed by all that knew him but most especially by his brothers and sisters. He is predeceased by his sister Mary and survived by his sisters Eilish, Brigid and Margaret his brothers Joe and Michael, nephews, nieces, relatives and friends, to whom we extend our sincere sympathy.
