The death of Bridie Walshe, Terlicken on Monday last, February 10th at St Joseph’s Hospital. Bridie was in her early eighties and lived all her married life in Terlicken with her late husband Joe, who died some years back. She was previously Bridie Higgins from Ardohill. Bridie was noted for her witty disposition and good humour which she shared with her many friends and acquaintances. She was a very hard working woman who enjoyed country life, especially on the farm where she shared every chore with her late husband and family of seven. She was a very plain living person who enjoyed nothing better than a good chat, a bit of good music and the odd drink down in Foigha. She was a very good living woman, a devoted mother and a most obliging neighbour. She suffered her recent illness with great dignity and patience and having paid her a visit to her immaculately clean and tidy home recently, she never suspected that she was so ill and that her demise was so weak. She will be sadly missed by all her friends and neighbours but more especially by her sons, Martin, Toddy, Tom, Ned, Dermot and her daughter Mary Jordan, her Grandchildren and extended family. She was predeceased by her son P.J, husband Joe and brother Tom. Bridie was buried in Kilcommock cemetery after mass in Saint Matthew’s Church, Ballymahon on Wednesday last. We also extend our sympathy to the Clendenning family of Ballymacormack and extended family on the death of William Clendenning, which occurred last Sunday, February 9th after a long illness. He was buried in Ballymacormack church of Ireland Cemetery after service on Wednesday February 12th.
