  • Recent Deaths in the North-West Region:
    Wed, Jul 30, 2014

    It is with great sadness that I report the sudden death of Hugh Connolly (Longford) - one of the famous and much loved Connolly brothers.  Hugh was one of the great characters of bridge (cheerful, honest, decent, with a 'Bid Boldly-Play Safely' Bridge system) and we still remember fondly all the Connollys from their lively days in the North-West region.  We extend our deepest sympathies to Peter, James, Kieran and all his family.

    Beloved husband of Mary and devoted father of Emma, Hugh and David. Sadly missed by his loving family, mother Christina, brothers and sisters, brothers-in-law, sisters-in-law, nieces, nephews, aunts, kindly neighbours and a wide circle of friends.  Rest in peace. Reposing at his home in Corragarrow this Friday evening (August 8th) from 8 pm and on Saturday.  Mass of the Resurrection on Sunday in St. Mary's Church, Newtownforbes, at 1pm.  Burial afterwards in Newtownforbes Cemetery. Family flowers only.  House private on Sunday morning.

     

    We are also saddened to learn of the death of Paddy Oliver (Swinford).  Reposing in Campbells Funeral Home, Swinford on Sunday from 3pm until 5.30pm and then from 6pm until 7.30pm with removal to the Church of Our Lady Help of Christians, Swinford arriving at 8pm.   Mass at 12 noon on Monday with funeral proceeding to Kilconduff cemetery.   House Private Please.  Family flowers only. Donations if desired to Croí.

     

    We are just coming to terms with the death of Teresa McGrath (Kiltimagh), personal friend, colleague and former CBAI President.  Teresa also gave a lot to bridge in the North-West during her onerous term as Regional Secretary, as player, teacher and tournament director.  We express our sympathies to her family (Paul, Ann, Mark, Niamh and 11 grandchildren) and friends.  May She Rest in Peace.
