Sympathy is extended to Martin Bohan, Foxborough and Mcloughra on the death of his brother Bartley which took place in Sligo General Hospital recently. Also to his brother Jim and sisters Mary Bridie and Anna, New Haven, Conn. Bartley’s sister Anna, his nephew Kevin and niece Doreen travelled from the U.S. for the very well attended removal from St. Patrick’s Hospital to the Church of the Immaculate Conception, Drumsna for his funeral Mass after which burial took place in Mohill. Bartley, an ex C.I.E. employee who was predeceased by his wife Mary some years ago, was a well liked and respected member of the community. May his soul rest in peace. Amen.
