It was with heartfelt sadness that the Longford community learned of the passing of Mrs Elizabeth (nee Hanley) Barry of 92 Teffia Park, Longford town on November 23, 2012. Mrs Barry, formerly of Clonturk, Dromod, County Leitrim, was mother to Dessie, one of Longford Slashers and the county’s most highly acclaimed Gaelic footballers.
Beloved wife of Dessie (Snr) and mother of Mary, John, Dessie, Kevin, Martin and Oliver, she is fondly remembered by her family, brother, sisters, son-in-law, daughters-in-law and grandchildren, her extended family and a wide circle of friends.
Her remains were removed from her residence on Saturday evening last to St. Mel’s Cathedral College Centre. Funeral Mass took place on Sunday at the college centre at 3pm and this was followed by burial in Ballymacormack Cemetery. May her soul rest in peace.
