THE LATE FRANK QUIGLEY
The death occurred suddenly on April 2, in Enfield, North London, of Frank Quigley, formerly of Gurth, at the comparatively young age of 47 years. He was a son of the late Paddy and Kitty (nee Ryan) Quigley and one of a family of six boys and three girls from a farming background. Frank emigrated to London in 1988, where he worked in the construction industry. He was a keen golfer and he was also an avid supporter of Tottenham Hotspur Soccer Club. Frank had been in poor health for some time due to cardiac disease and had a defibrillator transplant. Nevertheless, his death came as a great shock to his wife and family and friends.
A large crowd of family members travelled to London for mass in White Hart Lane Church and removal afterwards to McCormack’s Funeral Home, Kilcommon. Removal to St. Joseph’s Church, Hollyford took place on Sunday evening April 15. Requiem mass next day was con-celebrated by Fr. James O’Donoghue C.C., Hollyford and Fr. Dan Woods P.P., Kilcommon. Readers were John and P.J. Quigley, Frank’s brothers. Prayers of the Faithful were read by his nieces and nephews. Burial took place in the adjoining cemetery beside his parents and niece Grace. We tender our deepest sympathy to Frank’s wife Kathleen, brothers John, P.J., Tony, Jerry and Bill, sisters Una, Catherine and Mary, Aunt Mary Ryan, nephews, nieces, brothers in law, sisters in law, father in law, Bill Quigley, other relatives and friends. May he rest in peace. Month’s mind mass on sunday next May 6 at 3 p.m.
