The death has taken place in Cork of Mary Stack, formerly of Gortdromasillihy. During her time living here she ran a Nursery School and provided a service that was badly needed at the time. She had a wonderful way with children and was a very kind and gentle lady.
The death has also taken place, in Florida, of  Breda Clifford, formerly Kennelly of Kilbaha. She was sister of the late Jimmy Kennelly and is survived by her family, her sister May, brothers Fr. Michael and Timmy.
May they rest in peace. Sympathy is extended to their families.
