Mohill March 4



Farmers have suffered great sheep losses in and around Leitrim as a result of vicious dogs attacking their flocks. Leitrim county council stress that it is especially important to ensure that your dog is kept in a secure place at night time. Even the most docile family pet can turn into a killer when roaming with a pack of dogs. Community wardens will be carrying out door to door inspections during the coming weeks checking dog licences and ensuring that owners keep heir dogs under control. On the spot fines will apply for unlicenced dogs or dogs which are not kept under control in a public place. Dog owners are reminded that their dog must be identified with a collar and name tag. Stray dogs will be seized by the dog warden and removed to the Leitrim dog Shelter. A reclaim fee will apply in circumstances where a dog has been impounded. Remember a dog is mans best friend.

He was a gentleman of deep faith very knowledgeable who despite his ill health was always willing to help others. His removal took place from St Patricks Hospital Carrick on Shannon to St Patricks Church Mohill and was very well attended as was his requiem Mass which was celebrated by Fr Bernard Hogan PP. The lovely music by M Moran added to the solemnity of this very sad occasion.

We wish to offer our sincere sympathy to his sister Margaret, brothers in law, nieces, cousins neighbours and all who mourn Michael at this sad time. May his dear soul rest in peace.
