All in the parish of Carrickedmond and surrounding areas were saddened when news broke on Saturday, November 3 of the death of one of our oldest citizens, Anne Farrell (née Casey), Lissakitt, better known locally as 'Nan'.

Nan, who lived all of her married life in the parish, was known as a very friendly chatty and honest woman. She reared her family on the family farm and in her younger days was a hard working farmer’s wife.

Nan was a great woman of the faith and was a regular mass goer. She also liked to keep in touch with all that was happening in the community and liked nothing better than attending local community events where she loved to chat and catch up with her neighbours and friends.

Nan was a great family woman who loved to keep up to date with the sporting activities of her grandchildren and only recently was spotted outside her home in Lissakitt waving the Carrickedmond flag as the Carrickedmond ladies football team passed her home on the way back to Carrickedmond after winning the Alison Smith cup.

She will be sadly missed by all who knew her but especially by her daughter Anne, sons John and Jimmy, her brother Johnny, her sister-in-law Margaret, her daughters-in-law Marie and Frances, her son-in-law Martin, her grandchildren Seamus, Cait, Michelle, Joe,  Mary Kate, Aine, Sinead and Orla, other relatives and friends to whom we extend our sincere sympathies.

Nan’s remains were removed from her son John’s home for the funeral mass which took place in Carrickedmond church on Tuesday, November 6 and she was laid to rest afterwards in the local cemetery.
