Recently deceased
The news of the passing of Sr. Helen Kennedy was a shock to all in the community last weekend.
A former principal of Our Lady’s and a great community activist she will be sadly by all in the locality. Another popular lady around town, Miriam Dudley, also passed away last week.
In her 101st year Miriam was in great health right to the end. St. Mary’s National School closed due to falling numbers in 1925 but reopened in 1929. Miriam was one of ten students who began school life that year.
The funeral of Martin Pratt took place on Thursday last. Martin, son of Joe and Kit Pratt, died in London. Martin was a first cousin to Bridie Russell and Neil Quinlan whose mother Mary-Anne Maher was a sister to Kit. The Maher (Con) sisters came from Shanakill.
