The funeral of Patrick Bunce of Leitrim East took place last week. A very fit man Patrick had a most unfortunate accident in January and finally lost his fight for life. A gentleman who lived alone visitors were always welcome and since the death of his mother, Mamie, Patrick’s house had never changed. He was a better housekeeper than most women. He is survived by his sisters Novie, UK, Hannah, Wexford, Margaret & Teresa, Florida and Helen, UK. He was predeceased by his sisters, May & Bridget & brothers Nicky & Michael. The death also took place of Brendan Carr late of Barragougeen. Sympathy is extended to his brother Timmy. May they rest in peace.
