Last week we lost one of our more senior citizens, Paddy Fitzmaurice of Gurtdromosillihy at the age of 89.  Better known to all of us as Paddy Fitz he worked at the local creamery for 23 years and was retired equally as many years. He started work in Newtownsandes Co Op in June 1965 and retired in July 1988. He cut hay with the Creamery tractor for almost everyone in the parish at that time and was welcome in every home. Paddy was outgoing and friendly with an interest in everything local. He went in the "Wran" every year for as long as I can remember with his good friend Mikey Joe Flaherty who, sadly, has already left us and they both played music also in the local bars. He was devoted to his family, especially his wife Maureen who survives him. He is survived also by his daughter, Bridie O’Sullivan (Beaufort), sons Sean & Gene, son-in-law, daughters-in-law, grandchildren, sister, Mary, and other relatives. May he rest in peace.
