The above guild had a most enjoyable outing to Cork last weekend. They were very lucky with the weather and over the two days they covered a lot of ground. They stayed in the Gresham Metropole Hotel which was beautiful, during their stay they covered quite a lot of places such as The English Market, Photo Island, Shandon Bells, the cathedral, and of course shopping was high on their list. Holy Cross Abbey and a few churches were taken in as well on the way home and they enjoyed a beautiful evening meal in Roscrea Golf Club. Many thanks to our new president Maud who did the organising and there were no hitches.


The death took place at St John Of God Convent Kilkenny on Friday of Rev Sr Pauda Delaney formerly of Shrahane Camrossoldest, daughter of the late Michael and Mary Ellen Delaney. Mary as she was popularly known had lived all of her life in Kilkenny, and for a number of years she did not enjoy the best of health. But Mary was a fighter and time and time again she would bounce back and in doing so reached the great age of 84 years. Her funeral mass took place in St Patrick’s Church Kilkenny on Sunday. Chief celebrant being a family friend Fr Ryan assisted by her cousin Fr Michael Moore and Fr John Browne, the lessons were read by her nephews and nieces. She is mourned by her sisters Amie Lalor and Kathleen Lalor, nephews, nieces, cousins, many relatives, neighbours and friends in Camross. After the funeral all family and friends were entertained to a beautiful meal in the Springhill Hotel. Sincere sympathy to all of her family and community of nuns. She was laid to rest in Faulkstown cemetry.
