Late Phil Murphy

The death occurred after a long illness of Phil Murphy from Cappagh Inistioge and formerly of the Stray Lawn, Ballyknock. Even though long gone from his native heath, Phil will be remembered with fondness for his kindness and his witty sayings. A lover of nature he was never more-happier than when fishing for trout in the River Nore before pollution took over this splendid river.

He loved all kinds of music in particular Irish ballads and Country & Western tunes. With his friends he was a familiar face at numerous Fleadh Ceoil’s all over Ireland. Phil started his working life as a van man for Christy Daly’s Bar & Grocery store in New Ross before he joined the staff of the ESB Great Island Power Station in Campile where he was a highly-valued employee for nigh on 40 years. On retirement, he looked after his beautiful garden overlooking the valley in Inistioge, growing both flowers and vegetables and getting great enjoyment from doing so.

He passed away after a long illness on Sunday the 5th of June and was laid to rest in Cappagh Cemetery after 11 o clock Requiem Mass in St Colmcille’s Church Inistioge on Tuesday the 7th of June. Deepest sympathy goes to his wife, Ann, son, Nick daughters, Helen, Tina, Breda, Philo, Lisa, daughter-in-law, sons-in-law, extended family neighbours, friends, and all his former workmates in Great Island. May his gentle soul rest in peace.

Shock Defeat

The Tullogher/Rosbercon junior hurlers suffered a shock defeat in the quarter final of the Kilkenny All-County leagues. After impressive performances in qualifying rounds, they failed to live up to expectations in the game against Graig. Played on the latter’s home pitch, the game was won and lost in the opening half when Graig opened up a 1-10 to 0-4 lead. Although they only added 3 points in the second period, Tullogher hard as they tried could not peg back the deficit and ended up losing by a single point, 1-13 to 0-15.

Late Fursey Hanly

A former chemist with connections in New Ross and Rosbercon in the person of Fursey Martin Hanly passed away on Thursday the 9th of June. For years he operated the chemist shop on South St and for a while also had the pharmacy in Rosbercon. He was a thorough gentleman and his business manner was top-class and he had great respect for his customers.

Living in retirement on Main St, Loughrea, Co Galway for the past number of years he died last week. His funeral took place to St Brendan’s Cathedral, Loughrea, on Sunday the 12th of June and afterwards Fursey was laid to rest in Mount Pleasant Cemetery Loughrea. Sincere condolences to his wife, Pat and the extended family on the sad passing of Fursey.
