The death has taken place of a former Fine Gael Town Councillor in Laois.

Ollie Payne from Mountmellick passed away early on Thursday, November 25, after illness.

Mr Payne had served many years to his community as a member of Mountmellick Town Council, right up to the time that all town councils were ended in May 2014 as part of Government reforms.

A painter by trade, Mr Payne was also deeply involved in the GAA community.

He will be mourned by his wife Olive, their two daughters and three sons, family, friends and the wider community.
