It is with deep regret that we record the death of Mrs. Breda Walsh, Drangan. In her late 80s, she ran a successful guest house for many years. A good neighbour and friend, she will be sadly mourned by her family and friends. Her remains were removed from the family home on Thursday evening and following Requiem Mass on Friday morning, interment took place in the adjoining cemetery. Officiating clergy were Rev. Fr. T. Lambe P.P., Celebrant, assisted by Rev. Fr. J. McGrath P.P., Rev. Fr. T. Egan P.P. and Rev. Fr. Martin Crean O.S.A.

Our sympathy is extended to her son Sean, daughter Mary, brother, sister, grandchildren, relatives and friends.

Sympathy also to Margaret O’Connor, Drangan on the recent death of her mother, Mrs. Kitty Keane, Mayo. She was 92 years old.
