The late Jimmy Hickey
On February 19, the death took place after illness of Jimmy Hickey, Kilbreedy. Eldest son of William and Mai Hickey, Jimmy spent his early years just over the border in Ballinahinch. Jimmy came to live in the old Hickey family home with his uncle Jim. He later married Breda (McEniry) and they had three sons, Seamus, Frank and William. As well as tending to his farm, Jimmy had a number of outdoor interests. As a young fellow, he was a hurler of note and played with the Boherlahan teams, as a juvenile and as an adult from the late 50s up to the early 70s. He was an avid supporter of the club teams and one of his proudest boasts must have been in 1996 when his youngest son William won both an All Ireland Minor Hurling medal and also a Senior County Final medal. Another great interest of Jimmy Hickey’s was the “long- tails”, and Jimmy bred, and trained many dogs of note who were successful in the field. He was a lifelong member of the Pioneer Association. Though dogged with indifferent health for many years, Jimmy continued to run his farm and take part in his many other interests. Deepest sympathy to Breda, Seamus, Frank and William, brothers, sisters, inlaws, nephews, nieces, grandchildren and friends.
The late Sarah Meskell
On Wednesday, February 20, the death took place at Clonmel Hospital of Sarah Meskell, Ardmayle West.

Sarah was a member of the local I.C.A. and often represented the Branch at federation meetings. The I.C.A. flag was draped on her coffin and Anne Devitt, PRO of South Tipperary Federation paid tribute to her in a graveside oration. Sarah was a founder member of the Ardmayle Heritage Society and was Treasurer at the time of her death. She was a lifelong member of the Pioneer Total Abstinence Association and for many years represented her area in the Boherlahan Parish Council. She was a member of the local Bingo Committee where each week she attended, almost right up to the end. Sarah’s remains were laid to rest in Ardmayle Cemetery after Requiem Mass in Boherlahan.
