AN ENGAGEMENT !!
Congratulations Pat O'Regan & Orla Higgins on your Engagement.
We offer our sincere sympathies to the family of the late Alice Moloney, Anhid, who passed away peacefully after a short illness.
Very deeply regretted by her husband Stiofán, daughter Catherine, sons Michael, Stephen, Dermott and Kieran, son-in-law Tomás, daughters-in-law Margaret and Louise, grandchildren Ciara, Owen, Abi and Leah, brothers John and Gerry, relatives, neighbours and a very large circle of friends. The latter was borne out by the queues of people waiting to sympathise. Meeting Alice was like a ray of sunshine, she was always in good form and loved to chat. Alice and Stiofán were regulars in Granagh; they attended all our tea dances, all our plays, the 1916 commemoration and Alice always arrived for the 45 drives. A lady who will be sadly missed by all who knew her. Go mbeidh leaba i measc na Naomh aici.
