Andrea McHugh

It was with genuine regret and deep sorrow I learned of the death of Andrea McHugh Glenageary Dublin and late of Main Street Mohill who died peacefully on the 17th April 2011 after a long illness borne courageously and with dignity in the loving care of the doctors nurses and staff at St Vincents Private Hospital Dublin. We all remember Andrea as a beautiful little girl who was full of the joys of this life and who later as a qualified hairdresser transformed the ladies of Mohill by her hairdressing skills. Andrea was a lady of deep faith, a wonderful mother,daughter sister and friend and despite her illness was optimistic and an inspiration to us all. Her burial took place here in Mohill following con-celebrated Mass in St Patrick’s Church at which Fr Bernard Hogan PP was the chief celebrant. Mourners travelled from the four corners of Ireland to sympathise with her children Robert Ashling, mother brother William sister Jane, brother in law ,sisters in law nephews and all who mourn Andrea at this sad time.
