Mary Veronica Cullen, Doocastle

The recent death occurred after a long illness of Mary Veronica Cullen (nee Waters), late of Floughena, Doocastle. In her late ‘60’s, Mary Veronica was a native of Montiagh, Curry, and moved to Floughana after her marriage to her husband Michael. A hairdresser by profession, Mary was in business on Teeling Street, Tubbercurry for a number of years in the 1970’s prior to her family rearing duties taking over. In later years she worked from home and did the hairdressing duties for many years for the residents at Bailey’s Nursing Home. Always a cheerful bubbly and chatty character, Mary battled illness for many years but never complained.

Her remains reposed at her residence in Floughana prior to removal to the Church of the Sacred Heart, Bunninadden. Burial took place in Kilturra cementery, not far from her Floughana home.  She is survived by her husband Michael, sons David and Tony, daughters Michelle and Alma, brother Pat Waters, in-laws, grandchildren, nephews, cousins and a wide circle of friends, all to whom sympathy is extended. May she rest in peace.

Mary Carty, Clooncagh

The recent death occurred of Mary Carty (nee Durkin), late of Clooncagh, Tourlestrane. Age 95, Mary was a native of Gortersluin, just a short distance over the road from Clooncagh and after marrying her husband, Anthony, she spent the next 70 years in Clooncagh.

As a mother of 10 children, Mary was always busy, and went about her work with a smile on her face at all times. Her husband Anthony was a member of Sligo Co. Council for many years in the 1950-‘70’s which demanded time spent away from home and farm, and chores often fell to Mary to ensure they were done. When doing her regular shopping in Tubbercurry, she enjoyed meeting friends and parents of children similar in age to her children, and she always took a genuine interest in the progress of children of neighbours and friends. Up until her death she had a keen intellect, and her power of memory and recall was amazing throughout her latter life.

Anthony died in 1990 and Mary continued on in Clooncagh always taking an interest in the progress of the farm and in her many grandchildren and great grandchildren.  Her remains reposed at the Brennan Funeral home, Kilmactigue with Funeral Mass at St. Attracta’s Church, Tourlestrane, and burial afterwards in Kilmactigue Cemetery. Mary is survived by sons Michael, Bernard, Tony, Jimmy and Tommy, daughters Eileen, Patricia, Maura, Ann and Angela, brother Paddy, in-laws, grandchildren, great grandchildren, nephews, nieces and many friends, all to whom sympathy is extended. May she rest in peace.

Angela O’Neill, Rocklands

The recent peaceful death occurred of Angela O’Neill (nee Keane), late of Rocklands, Tubbercurry. Aged 88, Angela was a native of Tubbertelly, just a couple of miles outside town. As a young adult, Angela, like many of her generation left home and hit for New York in the late 1940’s, seeking work, adventure and life challenges. When in New York she met the love of her life, Frank, a West Cork native, and after getting married in 1951 they worked the ‘50’s decade in New York before moving back to Dublin in 1959. Juggling rearing a family with various office/administration jobs, Angela and Frank spent the next 40 years in Dublin before eventually getting back to Tubbercurry where she had left 50 years earlier. Happily retired in Rocklands since 1999, Frank passed away in 2010 after 49 happy years of marriage. Angela enjoyed catching up with old friends and relations since retiring in Tubbercurry.

Her remains reposed at the Morahan funeral home, and burial took place in Achonry Cemetery after funeral mass at the Church of John the Evangelist. Angela is survived by sons Frank and Kevin, daughter Dawn, brother Pat, in-laws, grandchildren, great grandchildren, many nephews, nieces and friends, all to whom sympathy is extended. May she rest in peace.

Tom Niland, Drimbane, Curry

The recent peaceful death occurred of Tom Niland, late of Drimbane, Curry. Aged 91, Tom worked for many years on the road staff of Sligo Co. Council throughout South Sligo as well as farming at home in Drimbane.

His remains reposed at St. Therese’s Funeral Home, Curry, and burial took place in Bunnacrannagh Cemetery after funeral Mass in the Church of the Immaculate Conception, Curry. Tom is survived by his wife Mary, daughters, Margaret and Teresa, sons, John and Jerry, brothers Jack and Joe, grandchildren, in-laws, relatives and friends, all to whom sympathy is extended. May he rest in peace.

Jack Cooke, Drumartin

The recent death occurred of Jack Cooke, late of Drumartin, Tubbercurry. Aged 72, Jack worked in England as a young adult through the 1960’s and ‘70’s, prior to moving back home to help in the care of his parents and siblings. He took up employment in Basta in the mid 70’s, and worked there for nearly 20 years before retiring. Jack also farmed and had a strong interest in sport of all types. He was always considered a good neighbour, ready to help out at any occasion necessary.

His remains reposed at the Brennan Funeral Home, Kilmactigue, and burial took place in Kilmactigue Cemetery after Mass at St. Attracta’s Church, Tourlestrane. Jack is survived by sisters, Mary, Bridie, Annie and Una, brothers, Tommy and Mickey, in-laws, cousins and friends, all to whom sympathy is extended. May he rest in peace.

Passing of two Cloonacool Sisters

Anne Murphy, Booterstown, Dublin

Kathleen O’Flaherty, Sandymount, Dublin

The recent deaths occurred of two Cloonacool sisters in Dublin, Kathleen O’Flaherty (nee Brennan) and Anne Murphy (need Brennan). Natives of Cloonacool village, and daughters of the late Jack and Kitty Brennan, both ladies were institutions in their own right, and great friends of all Cloonacool, Tubbercurry and Co. Sligo people who lived in Dublin. Both Anne and Kathleen were like 2 peas in a pod, and it was ironic that both passed to their eternal reward within months of each other, Kathleen dying in May, and Anne in November. Their parents, Jack and Kitty ran the pub and grocery business in Cloonacool village since the early years of the foundation of the State, and were highly respected and much loved by the local community. Their father Jack was involved actively in the War of Independence and later became involved in Co. Sligo GAA, being Chairman of the Sligo Co. Board from 1934-48.

Both girls were well educated and were reared with a good work ethos and instilled with a great love of their native country. On finishing their secondary school education, both girls moved to Dublin for work opportunities.

Kathleen trained as a Nurse and took up permanent employment in the Mater Hospital. It was while tending a young Kerry man in the Mater Hospital that she met Hugh O’Flaherty and they obviously fell in love and married.

Anne was a few years younger than Kathleen, and she in due course also went to Dublin working as a Bank Official. She in due course met and married Addy, the love of her life. As she matured she became known as Aunty Anne, even to those who were not related.

For the next 60 years both girls spent in Dublin, they got to know people from all walks of life and became known as loving and caring ladies, who would never refuse help, and often helped even if not asked. If they met any new arrivals into Dublin from Co. Sligo they went out of their way to help them settle. They became involved and fully immersed in the activities of the Sligo Men’s Association in Dublin and any time Sligo GAA teams played in Croke Park, they were there. No Sligo associated event in Dublin happened without at least one of the sisters in attendance. Nobody will ever know the full extent of their generosity and humanity.

Of course they always loved their trips home to Cloonacool, Tubbercurry and Co. Sligo and Anne’s daughter, Kitty got married in Cloonacool Church just a few weeks before Anne’s death. That was Anne’s last trip home.

Kathleen is survived by her husband Hugh, sons Hugh and Rory and daughters Catherine and Brid. Anne is survived by her husband Addy, sons Denis and John and daughter Kitty.

Both are survived by their sister Christina Murphy, Tubbercurry and a wide circle of nephews, nieces, In-laws, grandchildren, all to whom sympathy is extended. Not alone will they be missed by their immediate family, but also by the huge circles of friends they had developed over 60 years all over Ireland. May they both rest gently in peace.

Michael James Kirrane, Carrentubber

The recent death occurred in his 80th year of Michael James Kirrane, late of Carrentubber, Tubbercurry. A native of Knockahoney, Tourlestrane, Michael James started his working life in Stensons shop/pub in Tourlestrane before moving to Tubbercurry to take up employment in Mastersons Shop on Wolfe Tone Square. He then moved to Basta in the mid/late ‘50’s when Basta was still a young and fledgling enterprise. He continued to work there for nearly 40 years, retiring in 1998, and saw many highs and lows in the factory as employment numbers soared in the ‘60’s and 70’s before dropping again in the ‘80’s. It was in Basta he met his future wife, Bridie Scanlon, and after marrying in the early ‘60’s they settled in Carrentubber to rear their family.

Michael was an excellent farmer and took pride in producing and presenting his farm and stock in an excellent way. He was also a keen supporter of many sports – Manchester Utd. Sligo GAA, and Tourlestrane being amongst his favourites, and he was a good judge of both players and teams abilities. He was also a keen 25 card player and played at all the local game venues.

His remains reposed at his home in Carrentubber prior to removal to St. John Evangelist Church, Tubbercurry and burial took place in Rhue Cemetery.

Michael James is survived by his wife Bridie, daughters Mary, Nora, Michaela and Assumpta, son David, brothers John, Tom and Brendan, sister Josie, in-laws, nephews, nieces, grandchildren and many friends, all to whom sympathy is extended. May he rest in peace.

Weekly News - 27th November

Christmas Lights Stolen

The Tubbercurry community was shocked last week when news filtered out that the Christmas lights for the entire town were stolen from the location where they are stored. The Chamber of Commerce and Community Association go to great lengths and cost each year to light up the town for the enjoyment of everybody, but especially for children. Works had just started in getting the various strings upgraded and checked out prior to erection. This is work that is done on a part time basis by a small dedicated team who have been doing this same work for many years at a very keen cost.

When they arrived at the store last week to commence erection works, they discovered the entire set of strings had been stolen. How anybody can stoop so low as to steal town lights is beyond comprehension, and defies all logical thinking. It is one of the meanest types of crimes that could occur and is a sad reflection on parts of society. The Gardaí were immediately contacted to investigate the theft, and while they are following various lines of enquiry, no sign of the lights have been found. It is felt this is a crime carried out by local people and some people must definitely know who the culprits are.

Replacement of these lights will cost up to €3,000, and donations are sought from the public to help have them replaced and erected in time for Christmas. Each year the lights are switched on December 8th and it is hoped this can be the case again this year.

The thieves might steal the Christmas lights, but we will not let them steal the Christmas Festive Spirit, and Goodwill that the lights help create.

Donations can be left in to Geraldine Brennan at “The Laundry Basket” or you can donate online by logging on to www.gofundme.com/tubbercurry-xmas-lights-were-stolen

Weekly News - 6th November

Bank of Ireland Enterprise Award

Tubbercurry was recently entered into a Bank of Ireland sponsored “Enterprise” competition, and judging took place last week at An Chroí. A detailed presentation, running over 4 hours was made to the two judges in the presence of over 100 people.

Geraldine Brennan, President of Tubbercurry Chamber of Commerce and Community Association opened proceedings with a formal welcome and this was followed by presentations on various aspects of enterprise in the community by Roger McCarrick, Paraic Neary, Romauld Mullarkey, Teresa Cawley, Louise Kilbane, David Hosey and young Adam Walsh.

An exhibition of over 50 local large and small businesses with their wares was held in the exhibition space of An Chroí both inside and outside the building, and the judges took time to interact and meet every single exhibitor.  After that they visited a number of local businesses including, Tool & Gauge, Basta, and Alpha Precision Engineering before a final wrap up of the presentation was made.

This was a marvellous event and most informative for those locals who attended as well as for the judges.  The results will be announced at a Banquet on November 16th, and hopefully, Tubbercurry will be acknowledged for all the effort that was made in presenting the town in a positive manner.

Weekly News Oct. 30th

Located on the Ballina road, and just a short walk to town centre, the premises is available to rent out at low rates for start up businesses of any type.  The re-development was done by Tubbercurry Chamber of Commerce and Community Association with Sligo Co. Council and the developers are anxious to get full occupancy as soon as possible.  An Chroí has recently been nominated for an award in the “Excellence in local Government Awards” by Chambers Ireland in the section “Promoting Economic Development”. This is a great feather in the cap of Tubbercurry Chamber of Commerce, and an acknowledgement of how well Tubbercurry is working at present with Sligo Co. Council.  Personnel deeply involved in the sourcing of funding including, Romauld Mullarkey, Louise Kilbane and Geraldine Brennan on behalf of Tubbercurry, working in conjunction with Ciaran Hayes CEO and Ray O’Grady, Sligo Co. Council.

Winners of the Awards will be announced next month. In the meantime, if you or a friend have a business idea or a small start up business, feel free to call to An Chroí to get further details.

John Mullaney, Tubbercurry & Scotland
The sad and unexpected death occurred of John Mullaney, late of Teeling Street, Tubbercurry. Age 57, John was son of Evelyn and the late Jim Mullaney of Teeling Street. Jim and Evelyn were prominent business people from the mid 1940’s to the late 70’s in Teeling Street where Murphy’s Hotel now stands.  Young John Mullaney grew up on Teeling Street and worked in the business as a youngster. An able and versatile sportsman, John was an excellent athlete at long jump and sprint events and regularly represented Tubbercurry at the National Community Games, then held at Butlins, Co. Meath.  He was also a very stylish footballer at both soccer and Gaelic, and was a prolific goal scorer with his educated left foot. He grew up at a time when Tubbercurry were winning regular underage County titles at all grades, including Minor and U-21, and he was always prominent in the forward lines. He was also making the Tubbercurry Senior team in the early 1980’s before he emigrated to New York for career opportunities in 1986. In New York he worked for 15 years as a carpenter and was very much part of the Irish Community while there. He also represented Real Tubber soccer team for many years and was always prominent as he modelled his soccer style on George Best.  John was always jolly and always had a smile on his face. He met the love of his life Rita at a friends wedding in Scotland in 2002 and after getting married, lived and worked in Scotland for the last 15 years.  His recent unexpected death was met with grief amongst all his football playing friends in Tubbercurry, and a number of close friends made the sad trip to Scotland to say farewell to John on behalf of Tubbercurry.  His burial took place in Cille Choirill Cemetery near Roy Bridge, Fort William, which is in the Scottish Highlands, a most beautiful and picturesque cemetery. His coffin carried the Tubbercurry GAA and Real Tubber Jersey, two teams he loved dearly.  A memorial Mass will be held in November in John’s memory, details to be announced later.  John is survived by his loving wife Rita, mother Evelyn, sisters Mary, Dorothy and Claire, brother James, in-laws, cousins, nephews, nieces and many close friends, all to whom sympathy is extended. May his gently soul rest in peace.

Jackie O’Hara, Cloongoonagh
The recent death occurred of Jackie O’Hara, late of Cloongoonagh, Tourlestrane. In his late 70’s, Jackie was well known and respected by many throughout South Sligo and into Co. Mayo where he worked for many years.  As a young man growing up in the 1940’s and 50’s, he was sport mad and played Gaelic football through his young life, representing Tourlestrane and Sligo teams. He was also a hunting and fishing enthusiast, having grown up along the banks of the River Moy. He was a founding member of Tubbercurry Gun club when it was established in the early 1960’s. Jackie loved a game of poker and was part of a poker school in Cloongoonagh which was infamous for fun and late nights.  As a mature man, he was proud of his son Eamon when he exploded onto the County football scene in the mid 90’s, and in more recent years, he lived and loved to see his Grandchildren playing at top levels also. If he had lived a while longer he would have loved to see Tourlestrane put County Championship wins back to back as they did recently, with his son as Manager.  Jackie is survived by his loving wife Anne, daughters Ruth, Maree and Jacqueline, sons Derek and Eamon, brother Fr. Eamon, in-laws, cousins, neighbours and large circle of friends, all to whom sympathy is extended. May he rest in peace.

Cock Pheasant of the Day Competition & Social
The annual Cock Pheasant of the Day Competition and Social for South Sligo takes place this Saturday night, November 4th from 9pm at the Border Collie Pub in Tourlestrane.  This is the 34th annual running of this event, and is run under the auspices of gun clubs from Tubbercurry and Cloonacool.  It is run as a charity fundraiser, and each year a Charity is chosen as beneficiary where good work has been done in the area. Beneficiaries in the past have included North West Hospice, Irish Heart Foundation, Multiple Sclerosis Association, Order of Malta, Diabetes Federation, Sligo Oncology Unit and other various schools and organisations at a local level. Over the years over €50,000 has been donated from this event.  This year’s beneficiary is the Neo-Natal Unit at of Sligo General Hospital, as a local new born child benefited greatly from services provided in the Neo-Natal Unit.  The Pheasant Shooting season opens on this Wednesday November 1st and the social event is held on Saturday 4th.
