The death has occurred on Sunday, November 4, of Dermot Rice, Brookhill, Fethard, after a long illness borne very bravely in the wonderful care of Mr Peter Murchan and his Surgical 1 staff in South Tipperary General Hospital. Deeply regretted by Carmel, Fintan, Lisa, his sister Marie, extended family and friends.
Dermot was a very popular member of Fethard community, serving time with Fethard Macra na Feirme, Presentation School Board of Management, Fethard & Killusty Community Council, and Glanbia Fethard & Coolmoyne Area Advisory Committee to name but a few.
Dermot was also a fine athlete in his younger days excelling in track and field sports, rugby and tennis. His generosity and willingness to help anyone in trouble was always evident, as was his jovial character. Dermot will be greatly missed by all who knew him. Interment took place in Everardsgrange Cemetery. RIP.
