The death took place recently after a short illness of Margaret Mitchell, Drimmeen, wife of the late Charlie.

Her remains were removed from her sister, Bridget Canning’s residence at Cornagher, Gorvagh on Tuesday, April 9th to St Mary’s Church, Cloone. She was laid to rest after her funeral mass on Wednesday in the local cemetery. We tender sympathy with her sister, Bridget, nieces Mary, Tanya and Fionnuala, relatives and friends.

The death also occurred on April 16th of Jimmy Mimnagh of Gortfadda, Mohill and formerly of Farnaught.

His remains were removed from his residence to St Patrick’s Church, Mohill with burial taking place in Cloonmorris cemetery following his funeral mass on Thursday. Jimmy was a talented musician; playing banjo, fiddle and accordion. Jimmy suffered from a stroke some time ago and he coped with his illness bravely. We offer our sympathies to his wife Jackie, sons Jonathan, Gerard and Seamus, daughter-in-law, grandson Jason, family, relatives and friends.

May they rest in peace.
