A request to hand seeks information concerning the period approx between the years 1400 to 1500 as priests from the Norbertine Order ministered from their Abbey at Trinity Island in the parish. The information sought concerns a family named Sheridan – believed to be local and likely to come from Kilmore or Killeshandra parishes who were extremely kind and helpful to the order of priests ministering at Trinity Island and it is believed that descendents of the Sheridan family may reside in the district, any information concerning the family concerned will be gratefully received by this correspondent who will gladly pass on the information to those concerned.

There was general regret with the news of the death at Cavan General Hospital of Mrs Eileen Reilly (nee Keogh), Loughdavan, Loughduff. A quiet friendly and most inoffensive lady who was a kind and helpful neighbour and who was blessed with a deep religious faith. Deceased was predeceased by her husband Peter and is survived by her sons Peader, Thomas and Jim, daughters Margaret, Bridie and Teresa, brother Seamus, sister Bridie, grandchildren, great grandchildren, nephews and nieces and a large family circle to whom I extend the sympathy of the community. The funeral which was large and representative took place following requiem mass in Our Lady of Lourdes Church Mullahoran to Loughduff cemetery. May her gentle soul rest in peace.
Good wishes to the charity shop now open in Killeshandra. Opening hours 10am to 6pm, Thursday to Saturday and 12 to 6pm on Sunday.
