ROSALEEN REYNOLDS: There was deep regret in the community on hearing of the death of Rosaleen Reynolds Clarasminagh Mohill who died in the tender care of the doctors, nurses and staff at Sligo General Hospital on the 18th January 2012. Rosaleen was a very gentle lovely lady, a caring wife mother sister and obliging neighbour who will be sadly missed by the many friends she made down through the years. The very large attendance at her requiem Mass here in St Patricks Church at which Fr Pat Murphy PP paid tributes to Rosaleen and the lovely music song added to the solemnity of this very occasion, was indeed testimony to the high esteem in which she and her family were held by the whole community and to whom we offer our sincere sympathy. May her dear soul rest in peace.
