Mr John Lynch

Mr John Lynch

The sudden and unexpected death at his home in Knockahista of Mr John Lynch caused shock and sadness throughout the district where he was a well known and highly respected resident. A quiet and inoffensive man and a kind and helpful neighbour, he is survived by his wife Bridie, eight sons, five daughters, grandchildren and a large family circle to whom I extend the sympathy of our community. There was a very large attendance at the removal of the remains to St Felim’s Church, Ballinagh and again at the funeral which took place following con-celebrated mass to the family burial ground in the local cemetery. Rev Peter Casey PP, Kilmore and Rev Sean McDermott, PP Ballintemple officiated. May his soul rest in peace.


A number of private homes together with churches report on the theft of home heating oil in recent weeks and gardai are investigating.

President elect

Heavy rainfall has left land in a sodden condition but hopefully the month of March will see a dry spell that would bring relief to land owners.
