The death occurred on May 15 of Teresa Hyland (nee Frewen), Lyrefune, Ballyporeen, and fornaly of Glencush, Aherlow. Teresa passed away peacefully after a short illness which she bore so bravely. She was wife of the late Edmond (Ned) who predeceased her in 2002. Teresa was a gentle, friendly person who certainly lived life to the full, always enjoying meeting people and enjoying a joke and a bit of fun. She will be dearly missed by all who knew her. Her removal took place from Frazers funeral home Galbally to the church of the Assumption Ballyporeen, and after requiem mass on Friday, May 18, Teresa was laid to rest alongside her beloved husband Ned.

The large crowds that turned out for her rosary, removal and funeral mass bore testimony to the high esteem in which she was held. To her sisters Kathleen Gallahue, of Anglesboro, and the Gallaghue family, to Maudie Mullins of Boulinalisheen. Maudies husband Tom and Tom’s brother John. Teresas brother (and half twin ) T.P. and his wife Marie and all the Frewen family of Glencush, Aherlow, we extend our very deepest sympathies. May she rest in peace. Months mind for Teresa will be held on this Saturday night, June 23, at 7.30 pm in the church of the Assumption Ballyporeen.


It was with sadness we learned of the death on Friday morning last, June 15, of Timmy Mulcahy, 39 Galtee View, Ballyporeen. Timmy could only be described as a gentle man. He always made time to talk and enjoyed a laugh. He had a great love of nature and I suppose this came from working in the forestry with Coillte. Timmy had a huge circle of friends and this was certainly proven over the days after Timmy’s passing with the crowds who came to offer their sympathies to his loving wife Mary and family. Timmy will be dearly missed by all his neighbours in Galtee View and indeed by all who knew him. Timmy’s removal took place from his residence on Sunday morning last to the church of the Assumption Ballyporeen and after requiem mass Timmy was laid to rest in St, Mary’s cemetery. We would like to take this opportunity to offer our heartfelt sympathies to his wife Mary, brothers, Tom, John and Peter, sisters Bridget, Margaret and Mary, brothers in law, sisters in law, nephews and nieces, relatives, neighbours and friends. May he rest in peace in heaven.


Congratulation and very best wishes to Brid Crotty, daughter of Seanie and Margaret, and Liam Fraher, who were married on June 8 in the church of the Assumption Ballyporeen. We wish this couple a life long of health and happiness,


There are over 3,600 historic graveyards in Ireland with up to 1,400 years of history carved into the headstones that have been placed there over the years. In the past year the historic grave project have helped local community groups survey 6734 graves in 79 graveyards recording not only the names locations and inscriptions on those headstones but also recording local stories from local people about local cemeteries. As part of this exciting project the Knockmealdown steering committee in partnership with the local communities living along the length of the Knockmealdown mountain range hopes to train local volunteers on how to record the information contained with their local historic graveyards. Before the group proceeds any further we want to gauge the level of interest from people who might be willing to help out with this project. If there is enough interest from local communities Knockmealdown Active hopes to be in a position to organise the basic professional training necessary to conduct the survey and to supply cameras and other specialised recording equipment. If you think you might be interested in this very worthwhile project please sent a text message with your name and contact details and parish area to 0868119571 and we will contact you as soon as possible. If you would like more information on this project check out the internet,
