There was great shock and sadness at the recent death of Mrs Brid Phelan as a result of injuries received in a road accident near Kilheffernan roundbout outside Clonmel last month. Her husband John was injured in the accident and continues his recovery in hospital.
Mrs Phelan was principal of Newtown Anner NS (since closed) from 1975 to 1991 and many people have fond memories of her dedicated and energetic service to the surrounding community. The accident happened close to the school here she spent the last 16 years of her teaching career. A month’s mind mass will be held in the Church of the Resurrection, Fethard Rd, Clonmel this Friday, January 10 at 7.30pm.
