Seán Lynam: It was with deep regret we learned of the death of Seán Lynam, Cappagh, Mohill and Gorthnalougher, Cloone, who died on April 3 in the wonderful care of the doctors, nurses and staff at Sligo General Hospital. He was a gentleman who was a great family man, a loving husband, father, papa, brother and a most obliging neighbour and loyal friend. His removal took place to St. Patrick’s Church Mohill on Monday morning last for his Funeral Mass which was a celebration of Seán’s life and was representative of all sections of the community who came to pay their final respects and to sympathise with his dear wife Anna, son, daughter, grandchildren, brothers, sister, their extended families and all who mourn Seán at this sad time. “Those we love remain with us for love itself lives on and cherished memories never die, because a loved one’s gone.” May he rest in peace.
William Notley: The death of Willie Notley, Cloonboney, Mohill, at the nursing home, Rooskey, on April 4 has caused widespread regret in the local community. Willie was a gentleman of many qualities whom it was always a pleasure to meet. He had a wealth of knowledge from yesteryear and he loved recalling the dancing and plays in Cloonturk Hall where we all danced our cares away and had a lovely time. Willie, was a most devoted brother and uncle, who will always be lovingly remembered by his family, neighbours and many friends, who will miss him dearly. His removal took place from his home to Cloonturk Church on Holy Thursday, his burial was on Good Friday to Annaduff Cemetery and his Funeral Mass on Easter Sunday was highly representative of all sections of the community, which was a tribute to the high esteem in which he and his family were held, and to whom we offer our deepest sympathy. “He is gone no further from us than to God”. May his dear soul rest in peace.
