Boherlahan Dualla



It was learned with regret in his native Dualla of the death of Frank Mulcahy, Carhue, which occurred at Acorn Lodge Nursing Home on Sunday, April 21. Frank, one of Dualla’s much beloved senior citizens at the age of 87 years, was up and about and attending daily Mass up to a very short time before his passing. He was son of the late Thomas and Johanna Mulcahy (nee Coleman) and was the youngest in a family of four boys and three girls. The older generation in the parish can recall his brothers Thomas, Patrick and Jackie and his sisters Teresa, Angela and Kathleen. He was an esteemed member of the farming community and took over the family farm at a young age. He had a keen interest in Gaelic Games and in his younger days often cycled to Cork and Limerick for hurling matches. Frank was one of nature’s gentleman, a great conversationalist and a good neighbour and friend and above all he was a great family man. He was over 50 years married to Marion (nee Moloney) and a native of Oughterard, Co. Galway and a former teacher of Dualla NS. His remains were removed on Tuesday 23rd from Lonergans Funeral Home to the Church of Our Lady of Fatima, Dualla, and after Requiem Mass on the following day, celebrated by Fr. Peter Brennan C.C. and assisted by Fr. Joe Egan P.P., Fr. Christy O’Dwyer, Dean of Cashel and Fr. Mat Knight, Rockwell College, interment took place in the adjoining cemetery. He is survived by his wife Marion and by Tom and Seamus (sons), Mary, Ann and Catriona (daughters), Cecile and Anne (daughters-in-law), Mick (son-in-law), Robert and Isabelle (grandchildren), sister-in-law, brother-in-law, nephews, nieces, relatives and friends. Peace to his soul.
