The death has taken place of Nicholas (Nicky) O’Toole of Grennan, Attanagh. His many friends and neighbours were saddened by his unexpected passing. Even though he had reached his mid-eighties, Nicky was still active around his farm to the very end.

A well known popular figure in the area, he will be sadly missed. His remains reposed at Phelan’s Funeral Home in Durrow from where they were removed to the Church of the Assumption, Ballyouskill on Monday 25th March for requiem mass with burial afterwards in the adjoining cemetary. Sympathy is extended to his brother Michael, sisters Lucy and Nancy, nephews, nieces, relatives and friends. May he rest in peace.


Sincere condolences to Mary Kennedy of Barnderry, Attanagh on the death of her brother Paul Skehan of Rathlogan, Johnstown, Co. Kilkenny which occurred last week.
