The late Joe Doyle

It’s with much sadness and regret that we record the death of Joe Doyle which occurred suddenly at his residence in Molly on Saturday, October 24th last. The late Joe was an easy going gentleman who could only be described as a real kind decent man who will be sadly missed by everyone who had the pleasure of knowing him. Joe was an accomplished accordion player and while he never sought the limelight, he was always ready to help at any fundraiser in the area and was happiest when he was sitting in a quiet corner playing his tunes. Predeceased by his sisters Mairead and Rita, Joe is survived by his sister Shelia Connor, Ardagh; brothers Seamus, Thomas and Brendan, his nieces and nephews, cousins, neighbours and many friends to whom we extend sincere sympathy at this sad time. Joe was laid to rest on Wednesday following Mass in St Colmcille’s, Aughnacliffe. May he rest in peace.

Birthday greetings

Congratulations to Bunlahy publican, Johnny Creegan who celebrated a very special birthday at the weekend and also to Donal McElvaney, Coolarty who was celebrating on Saturday night last. We wish both lads many more great celebrations.

Aberdeen Angus Champions

Congratulations and well done to the Reynolds family, Bunlahy who had the Champion Male and the reserve champion female at the national Aberdeen Angus calf show in Tullamore recently. We wish you continued success with your top class animals.


Congratulations to Dermot Monahan, son of Mary and the late Richard, Muckerstaff, Coolarty who was married to Caroline Keena in Loughrea on Saturday, October 24th last. Dermot and Caroline were joined by family and friends for a beautiful reception in Athlone which went

on into the early hours of Sunday morning and was enjoyed by all. We join with both families in wishing them a long and happy life together.
