MICHAEL ROWLEY: The death of Michael Rowley Shannagh on the 13th January 2013 in the wonderful care of the doctors, nurses and staff at lake View Nursing Home Lough Errill, Mohill has caused widespread regret in the community. We all remember Michael as a noted tradesman, full of cheer who was always on hand to come to the rescue. Michael spent many years in England where he always helped his fellow Irishmen to get a job and place to stay. He will be fondly remembered. We shall miss that impish smile and firm handshake. The very large attendance at his removal to St Patricks Church Mohill and again at his requiem Mass which was a celebration of Michaels life was testimony to the very high esteem in which he and his brothers Johnnie and Brian, sister Mary Agnes,nephews, nieces and extended family were held by the community and to whom we offer our most sincere sympathy.
