Having reposed at her residence her remains were removed to St Fergals Church Camross on Wednesday morning and burial took place following requiem mass in the adjoining cemetery. Mrs O’Sullivan was a keen Bingo fan and enjoyed a night out even when her health was deteriorating

Chief mourners are her husband John and was pre-deceased by her oldest daughter (Teresa Gilligan) her sons Con, Sean, Michael, Ger and Kevin, daughters Patricia, Deirdre, Carmel, Dympna and Mary, grand children, great grand children, relatives many friends and neighbours.


Sincere sympathy is extended to the Murphy family Rathdowney on the sudden death of Hugh which took place last weekend.

Camross win number twenty four

Celebrations lasted well into the week after the senior hurlers brought home the new O’Keefe cup for the first time defeating their neighbours Borris-Kilcotton in an exciting County final in splendid conditions in O’Moore Park.

Team captain was Mossy Burke winning his second senior medal adding to four under twenty one titles and numerous under age awards. The team were feted in the Parish hall on their return and treated to a well earned meal.

Many supporters travelled long distances to be present on County final day and were rewarded with another fine performance from a very young team. The club would like to express their appreciation to all who supported the Church gate collection and for their support all through the campaign.

In the Leinster club championship Camross will play the winners of the Offaly final which took place on Sunday last and that game will be played in O’Moore Park on Sunday November 3.

On Saturday last Camross-Kyle were due to play Rathdowney-Errill in the under twenty one championship. Details in sports pages.


Camross will defend their junior championship title on Saturday next October 12 when they take on newcomers O’Moores who are appearing in their first final. Camross defeated St Brighids on Saturday last and O’Moores beat many times champions the Harps. The club are grateful to Sean Bergin for his generous sponsorship ahead of Saturdays final.
