late Maura Holohan

The death has occurred, on the 21st January 2015 of Maura Holohan (nee Herlihy), Grennan, Attanagh, Co. Laois. Maura was a resilient, steadfast lady whose treasures were her family. She was also a very kind and reliable neighbour and carried out many good deeds in a quiet manner. Predeceased by her husband John she is deeply regretted by her daughter Darina, son Darren, brother Eamon, sister Joan, daughter in law Nicola, son in law Gerard, grandchildren Shauna and Ilana, nieces, nephews, relatives and friends.

Maura reposed at her residence with rosary on Thursday evening. Her removal took place on Friday morning to the Church of the Assumption, Ballyouskill with burial afterwards in Ballinakill cemetery. We extend deepest sympathy to all her family. May she rest in peace.
