SYMPATHY

Clonaslee Parish and Community Lottery with great sadness mourn the passing of the late Lizzie Conroy RIP of Ballinahemmy, Clonaslee. She will be greatly missed because of her loyalty and faithfulness to the many organisations she was involved with over the years. Lizzie was a promoter of the Parish/Community Lottery since its inception in 1993 and her commitment and dedication endeared her to all of us who had the privilege of knowing her.
