Recent death

We tender sympathy to Ita and Frank Flynn and family, Fearglass North, on the death of Ita’s mother, Tess Reynolds, Ballinamore. Wife of the late Pat Joe, she was a popular lady with endless ability, and was renowned for her participation in the many events in her home town of Ballinamore and the surrounding area. Held in high esteem by all who knew her, Tess dealt with her deteriorating health with courage and dignity, and her passing has left a void in the lives of many people. She will be sadly missed by her daughters Ita and Jenny, sons Gerry and Peter, brother, daughters-in-law, sons-in-law, sister-in-law, grandchildren, nieces and nephews and a very large circle of friends. May she rest in peace.
