Death of Mary Murphy

It was with great disbelief that the sad news of Mary’s passing became so real on Wednesday evening last. Mary was a great community women and a great Mother and Grandmother. She was liked by everyone and had a million friends. She was kind and very warm hearted. Mary loved her Bingo this was her social outing and she enjoyed it so much. To her husband Batty, children, Marie, Thomas, Kenneth, Enda and her brother, Martin and all her extended family, we extend our deepest sympathy on their sad loss. May she rest in peace.

It was with great sadness and shock to hear of the untimely death of Declan Connor, better known as the Dec. Declan was a true gentleman and was always a great man to have a conversation with. Dec enjoyed his work in the garage and would always do you a good turn. He was also a great supporter of the Rathowen Lotto. He will be sadly missed. To his wife Lily, son David and daughter in law Linda and grandson Ryan, we extend our deepest sympathy. May he rest in peace.
