Gentle Mother, New Entrance and Suir valley Railway

Gentle Mother

We extend our deepest sympathy to Niamh Larkin, Powersknock on the recent death of her beloved mother. Eleanor Morrissey(nee Conlon) formerly of Boatstrand and 121 The Quay was a resident of Greenhill Nursing Home for the past few years. Eleanor is predeceased by her husband Martin and her daughter Cait. She is survived by her sons Conor and Walter and her daughters Roisin, Maire, Niamh and Brigid, her daughter in law Bernie and sons in law Ned and Tony, her brothers Brendan and Tommy and of course her adoring grandchildren and great grandchildren.

Although I can’t say I had the pleasure of knowing Eleanor personally I have been in the company of her family many times and heard their lovely stories of their childhood and I have witnessed that beautiful strong bond they all have and that is now evident in the next generation. Things like that don’t just happen, it is passed on by example so I have no doubt that Eleanor and her late husband Martin were the beacons of love and kindness, leading their family down the path of life. They also gave them a wonderful love of our national language, a great appreciation of music and song and that great gift of hospitality. I know that all these traits will carry on through the generations of this family for many years to come. We offer our prayers for Eleanor and her grieving family and hope that their wonderful memories will help them in the future. Go bhfanfaidh a hanam milis i suaimhneas agus go gcumhdoidh a guth leis na haingil neamhai.

Recent Death
We extend our sympathies to the Brennan and Harney families on the recent death of Joan Brennan(nee Harney) late of Terenure, Dublin and also a former resident of Ballyduff. We pray that she now rests in peace.


New Entrance

It is wonderful to see all the work which is taking place on the new entrance to the Greenway at the top of Matthews Cross. This will be a fantastic facility in our area and will also bring many visitors into our area. The workmen say that all works should be completed within the next few weeks so we look forward to being able to enter the Greenway safely and securely and visiting the many beautiful places in our area.
