The death of Michael Carroll, Coolbawn, occurred on Friday 18th October. After reposing at Keller’s Funeral Home on Sunday evening, the funeral arrived at Kilbarron Church on Monday morning for Requiem Mass, followed by burial in the adjacent cemetery. Michael was a much loved husband, father, grandfather and great-grandfather. He was 86 years of age and had farmed in Coolbawn where he was noted for his hard work and held in high regard by the farming community. Michael was well known for his sense of humour and was a good neighbour and friend. Sympathy is extended to his wife Ciss, son Brendan, daughters Mary Ellen, Deirdre and Georgina, grandchildren, great-grandchild, daughter-in-law Margaret, sons-in-law Phil and Paul, nieces, nephews, relatives and friends.

The death occurred on October 14th of Mamie Kelly, nee Hough, in Swindon, England, formerly of Grawn, Ballinderry. The funeral arrived at the Church of the Immaculate Conception, Terryglass, on Wednesday evening and after Funeral Mass on Thursday burial took place in the adjoining cemetery. Mamie and her husband lived their married life in England, but never lost their love of their birth place and were regular visitors to the parish every summer and spent many weeks at their residence in Ballinderry. Sympathy is extended to her husband Joe and sons John, Flan and Peter, grandchildren, relatives and friends in Ireland and England.

The untimely death of David Cahalan, occurred on Saturday 26th October. Sympathy is extended to his children, father Michael and brother Paul, relatives and friends.

Due to unforeseen circumstances the Shannon Rovers Camogie Club have had to change the date of the upcoming Auction. It will now be held on Sunday November 17th.

As you are aware the Kilbarron/Terryglass Historical Society is doing a project to commemorate all those from the parish who took part in or anyone linked to WW1 in some way. Last Friday saw a very successful gathering take place and a lot of relevant information shared, however there is probably a lot more out there. For a project that started out to relate to 7 or 8 people, it has now risen to 34. Those are people who were born or came to live in the parish, but there may be more. This is not confined to soldiers, anyone such as nurses, doctors or people who did things on the home front- we would like to hear about them from their relations. Please contact Helen Fox 087 2074377.
