SYMPATHY: We offer sincere and deepest sympathy to the family and many friends of Pearse Daly who passed to his eternal reward on Thursday last. Pearse compiled the North Longford notes for the last thirty years and just retired last week. It was always a joy to read Pearse’s notes as they were always full of information and his ability to pay a fitting tribute to the recently deceased was just outstanding. Pearse will be sadly missed by all and we pray that his gentle soul will rest in peace.
As part of ongoing changes on www.longfordleader.ie, an edited version of all local notes will appear on the website from August 1 2011. The full text of the local notes appear in the printed edition of the Longford Leader.
