Once again we have lost a member of our community. The funeral of Emma O’Brien, nee Holly took place at the beginning of the week. Old habits die hard and when you are in business for more than one generation the name rarely changes and so she was known to most of us as Emma Holly from Holly’s shop. She worked hard and provided a service seldom seen in rural villages. With the help of her husband Jack, who passed away four years ago on Christmas Eve, she built a new shop but still provided the same service and keen prices. Ill health forced her to make changes and the business is now leased. Her funeral Mass took place on Monday in the Church of the Assumption, Moyvane followed by burial in Ahavoher Cemetery. The Mass was celebrated by Fr. Kevin McNamara, P.P. assisted by Fr. Brendan O’Callaghan, Knockanure, Fr. John O’Connor, Tarbert and Fr. Walsh, Tralee. When Moyvane Church was being built, Fr. Walsh’s father, Paddy worked on the building and stayed with Emma’s parents during that time. It was good to see Paddy at her funeral Mass. The friendship remained over all those years and it was nice to see it continue in this manner. Sincere sympathy to her son Ivan, brother Denis, his wife Kay her Aunt Mary, niece and nephew and many relatives. Terry Dunne, who took over the business following Emma’s illness, must be complimented on the respect shown during the days following her death and over the removal and burial allowing the staff  time to attend her funeral Mass. Not many businesses close now on occasions such as this. Hopefully the shop will serve our community far into the future as it is now the only Supermarket in Moyvane.
The death also took place last week, in Dublin, of Pat Cunningham also of the Village. Pat was son of Billy and Jo Cunningham and brother of the late Eddie. He is survived by his wife, Margaret and son David, his sister Mary Carmel and brother Maurice. His funeral took place in Cabinteely.
Tess (Pelican) Geoghegan Grouse Lodge Kilcolman Ardagh wife of the late Tom also passed away last week. Sympathy to her son Stephen daughter Joanne and brother Eamon Pelican. May they all rest in peace.
