MRS GWEN FAY
There was general regret with the news of the death at Castlemanor Nursing home following a brief illness of Mrs Gwen Fay Drumlion Ballinagh. A quiet friendly and helpful lady Gwen together with her husband James came from England some years ago and purchased a private residence at Drumlion where they quickly endeared themselves to the local community among whom the couple were held in high esteem. Among their varied interests was a keen interest in gardening and the couple served for some years as secretaries of the Ballinagh Gardening Club. Deceased is survived by husband James (Jim) and relatives to whom I extend the sympathy of our community. The funeral took place following service in St Patrick’s Church Ballintemple to Croosskeys cemetery.
Good wishes to popular Rev Father Peter McPartland PP of Ballinemple who is presently a patient in hospital and carries our best wishes for a speedy recovery.
