Late Lizzy Sinnott (nee Hensey)
There was widespread sadness at the passing of Lizzy (Liz) Sinnott of the Shannon Road Mountrath and formerly of Knocknagad Camross. Liz was born in the late thirties and married Bill Sinnott of Sconce, Ballyfin and after spending time in England both working the couple always wished to return to live in the locality and they soon found a new home in Mountrath close to both families.
The couple reared seven children all of whom are still working and living in Ireland. Liz was a very jovial person and lived for her family but was diagnosed with Cancer some months ago and passed away in the care of the staff of St Lukes Hospital in Dublin on Saturday, November 30. Having reposed at her residence the remains were removed to St Fintan’s Church, Mountrath on Sunday evening and on Monday morning at her Requiem Mass a huge attendance heard Fr Joe Brophy speak of a wonderful caring Wife, Mother and grand mother who would be sadly missed by her family, neighbours and friends. Liz was pre-deceased by her parents John and Catherine, brothers Fint and Frank. At the conclusion of Mass her son Francis paid a wonderful tribute to his Mother and told of the bad and good times in his Mothers life and how she loved living near the Slieve Bloom mountains and travelling simply did not appeal to her, a trip down the Garrafin road on a summers evening was therapy and although long gone never forgot her roots and Camross hurlers winning was a source of great pride and joy. Following Mass Liz was taken to St Fintan’s cemetery for burial. Chief mourners are her husband Bill sons John, Joe, Francis, Pat and Liam, daughters Catherine and Lisa, eleven grandchildren, Sister Mary Higgins Killeen, sons-in-law, daughters-in-law, sister in law Mary Lowry Cappinarrow, brothers-in-law Andy and Jack, nephews, niece’s relatives and friends to whom deepest sympathy is extended.
Congratulations to CJ Sheeran sawmills who beat Paddy Power Bookmakers in the inter firm Leinster hurling semi-final at Derrynaseera on Saturday week last and will play the final against either Bord Na Mona or Michael Lyng Motors on this Saturday afternoon again at Derrynaseera.
