The sudden death of Noel Tiernan at his residence Farnaught Gortletteragh Mohill on the 8th February 2011 has caused widespread regret in the community. Noel was a very kind unassuming gentleman who will be very sadly missed by his sister and host of friends. His removal which took place to Gortletteragh Church was very largely attended as was his funeral following requiem Mass which was a celebration of Noel’s life. Our sympathies are with his sister brother in law nephews nieces cousins neighbours and all who mourn Noel at this sad time.
