The sudden and sad death of Tom Maher, Closh, left the parish in shock and sadness over the weekend. Tom was everyone’s friend and his sudden passing made it all the worse. Tom was a son of Patrick & Lucy (nee Costigan) Closh. Toms father R.I.P hailed from Derlamogue. Tom was predeceased by his brother Seamus and his sister Sr. Mary Agnes. He is mourned by his brother Paul and Sister Sr. Peg. We offer our sincere sympathy to all his loving family.
