Sympathy is extended to the Mongomery family of Edenderry and to the Dunne family of Ballyheshill Rhode on the death of Pat who died on Sunday last and was interred to Edenderry cemetery on Wednesday. May he Rest In Peace. Sympathy is also extended to the Leavey family of Clonmeen on the death of Peter after a short illness. Peter was a gentleman of the highest order, a man of quite disposition but a great conversationalist. He was also a farmer and an employee of Bord Na Mona. He went about his life in a quiet and dignified manner and will be greatly missed by all of us but especially by his immediate family. Peter was also a great follower and supporter of all Rhode and Offaly teams. Peter’s remains were laid to rest in Rhode cemetery on Saturday. May he Rest In Peace.
