The death took place in the Co. Hospital Portlaoise recently of Martin Delaney Lacca, youngest son of the late Patrick and Julia Anne (nee Cuddy) Glendine Camross. Martin did not enjoy the best of health in recent times but he kept going as best he could. A hard working man all of his life he is mournrd by his wife Maureen (nee Glennon), his sons Tony, Peter, Paddy, Martin, Gerry, Michael and Larry, his daughters Heather, Mai and Josie, sons-in-law, daughters-in-law, grandchildren, great-grandchildren, cousins, neighbours and friends. Martin hurled with Camross and the club formed a Guard of Honour at his arrival to the Church. His nephew Tommy is the recent Chairman of the Camross Club. Sincere sympathy is extended to his loving family.
The annual Field day took place on Sunday and was a good success despite the horrible showers intervening at times. There was all the usual side-shows, auctios of straw, grain and timber. A Road Run early on, a display of patchwork and Mountmellick Lace, with food galore. There was something there to catch everyones eye as well as the usual meeting of friends. You could say a social gathering all around and hopefully a little profit as well.
