THE LATE PADDY WARDICK
It was learned with regret in Dualla and surrounding districts of the death of Paddy Wardick, Garranmore, which occurred on Monday, July 2, at St. Patricks Hospital, Cashel. He was son of the late Jack and Bridget Wardick (nee O’Dwyer) and hailed from a family of four, having two sisters and one brother. He had reached the age of 84 years and was active up to a short time before his final illness. As a hardworking man throughout his life and during hard economic times, he worked mostly in construction both in England and Ireland, before finally settling down on the family farm with his wife Gertie (nee O’Sullivan), whom he met in England.
When Killough Limeworks opened in 1953, he sought employment there for a while before moving to England to seek further opportunities. On his return from England, he worked in many places, including Belfield UCD, Tynagh Mines and Burkes Bacon Factory, Clonmel.
Paddy had a keen interest in local and national affairs. He came from a family associated with our struggle for freedom as his late father Jack was a member of the 3rd Battalion, 3rd Tipperary Brigade Old IRA. His great love was the GAA, to which he gave great commitment. He was particularly involved with the local Juvenile Clubs of the 1970s and his care and guidance of the young people made a deep impression. He was also a great conversationalist with a good knowledge of local history and especially of his native Garranmore.
He was particularly devoted to his wife and family. Gertie, his wife, predeceased him in 1999.
Paddy’s remains were removed from his home on Wednesday to the Church of Our Lady of Fatima, Dualla for his funeral Mass, which was celebrated by Fr. Peter Brennan CC, assisted by Fr. Christy O’Dwyer, Dean of Cashel. Interment took place in the adjoining cemetery. His coffin was draped in the blue and gold of Boherlahan Dualla GAA. The very large attendance, representative of the GAA and his many other interests testified to his popularity and to the esteem in which he and his family are held. He is survived by his son John, his daughter-in-law Niamh, grandchildren Jack and Kate, his sister Mary Duane, Cashel, relatives and friends to whom sincere sympathy is extended. Peace to his soul.
Sympathy is extended to Paddy Horgan, Clareen, and the extended Horgan family on the death of his sister Teresa in England.
Sympathy is also extended to Sarah Meskell, Kilbreedy, and the extended Meskell family on the death of Sarah’s sister Nora McGrath (nee Ryan (Mason) recently.
Sympathy is extended to Geraldine Maher, Nodstown on the death of her aunt Nora McGrath (nee Ryan (Mason).
