The sad news of the sudden death at his residence on November 6 of Mr. Eamon O’Connor, Marian Place, Glin was received with shock and deep regret in the parish. Eamon who was only in his forties was well known in Tarbert, where he came to visit his sister Ann and meet his friends. He enjoyed the weekly card games of 41 and poker on Tuesday and Wednesday nights, and also liked a flutter on the horses. He was a man with a kind and gentle personality, enjoyed a joke and story, he will be sadly missed by his family and friends. Large numbers of Tarbert people were among the huge attendance at the removal of the remains from Healy’s Funeral Home, to the Church of the Immaculate Conception, Glin, and again at the funeral Mass and burial which took place to Kinard cemetery, Glin. Sympathy of the community was extended to his sister Mrs. Ann O’Connor, brother-in-law Leo O’Connor, aunts Mrs. Bridie Horan and Lily O’Neill all of Tarbert. He is also survived by his brothers, sisters, aunts, uncles, and numerous relatives and friends.
