The death occurred on July 26 of Mary Walsh at her residence, 12 Church Street, Mitchelstown.

The late Mary (née Carroll) was formerly of Tenniscart, Buttevant.

She was a popular member of the local community and was predeceased by her husband, Jim.

She was a deeply religious lady and a Minister of the Eucharist.

Her popularity was borne out in the large and represented attendance present at her funeral from the Chapel of Rest on Sunday evening to the Parish Church, and also at the Requiem Mass and Burial on Monday.

Interment took place to Brigown New Cemetery. To her sons, John and Kieran; daughters, Ann and Fiona; brother, Don; sister, Joan; sons-in-law; daughter-in-law; grandchildren, Joshua, Jake, Megan, Hannah and Niamh; brothers-in-law, sisters-in-law; nephews; nieces; relatives; neighbours; and many friends, we tender our sincere sympathy.
