Death of Bill Doherty

One of our most senior citizens Bill Doherty, Sheroe passed away peacefully at Thomand Lodge Nursing Home Ballymahon on Friday last. Bill was a member of the large and well respected Doherty family from Deerpark. He spent most of his working life as a talented plasterer. Bill was a perfectionist and took great pride in his work. A very talented footballer having played on Legan teams in the 40s and 50s and was a keen follower of Legan Sarsfields Club until his death. Bill loved nothing better than a good chat with friends over a pint and above all a game of cards. Bill was predeceased by his wife Kitty, who together reared a large family. He is survived by his sons JJ, Mick, Tommy, Jimmy, Aidan, Derek, daughters Miriam, Angie, Patsy, Vera and Sandra, grandchildren, great grandchildren, relatives and friends to whom we extend our sincere sympathy. His removal took place on Sunday evening to St Marys Church Legan and he was laid to rest on Monday following requiem mass in Carrickedmond cemetery. May he rest in peace.
