We offer sympathy to the Bohan Family, Funshinagh, Keshcarrigan on the death of Tommy Bohan who died on 25th February in the loving care of his family.

Tommy was in his 93rd year. He was a very cheerful, warm character with a love for his family, farm and Kiltubrid GAA. Tommy was a friend to both young and old and will be dearly missed. He was a wealth of knowledge from years gone by.

We sympathise with his sons, daughters, sons- and daughters-in-law and extended family. Ar dheis De go raibh a anam.
