Last week we lost two of our older citizens. Kathleen O’Connor, The Hill, Knockanure, formerly Stack of The Hill, Moyvane passed away in Lystoll Lodge, Listowel. She is survived by her sons, Jerry, Edward & James and extended family.
The funeral Mass for Noreen O’Connor, Kilbaha formerly Noreen Larkin, of Carrueragh took place in The Church of the Assumption, Moyvane on Sunday morning. Noreen is survived by her daughters, Mary, Patricia, Kay, Teresa and Geraldine and her son John, her brother Fr. Paddy Larkin, Kansas, sons-in-law, Tony, Micheál, Seán, John (Gunn) and John (Fitzgerald) and daughter-in-law Eileen, sister-in-law Moira and brother-in-law Connie, grandchildren, great-grandchildren, relatives, neighbours and friends. At the age of 39, in 1966 she lost her husband Willie, (he was 49) and was left to bring up seven young children. She was an incredible woman who got on with life, worked hard on the farm and saw all her children do well. Unfortunately in later life she suffered with Alzeimers but it was a blessing in disguise because she was unaware of the untimely death of her youngest daughter, Angela and her grandson, Darragh Lannigan. The Church was packed for her funeral Mass on Sunday. May they Rest in Peace.
