Thomas Bohan

There was widespread regret on hearing of the death of Tommy Bohan, Funshinagh, Keshcarrigan who died in the loving care of his family at home on Feb 25th 2013. Sadly he was predeceased by his dear many years ago. RIP. Tommy as he was most affectionately known was a great family man and most obilging neighbour, a noted farmer who loved the outdoors and attending to his stock. He had a wealth of knowledge from yesteryear. His home was always welcoming. Tommy will be sadly missed by family, neighbours and friends. His removal to St. Brigid’s Church, Kiltubrid and the attendance at his concelebrated Mass was representative of all sections of the community who came to pay their final repects and to sympathise with his family and to whom we also offer our sympathy. “Those we hold most dear never truly leave us. They live on in the kindness they showed, the comfort they shared and the love they brought into our lives”, May he Rest in Peace
