To absent friends

As we reach the end of 2016 and look forward to whatever the coming year will bring, it's an apt time to also reflect on those who started the year with us but have since passed on.

The names which follow are of people who lived in Kilcullen, or whom were connected at some point with Kilcullen, whose deaths were recorded on the Diary this year.

May they be remembered with affection, love, joy, and inevitably with a level of sadness, by those who loved them and whom had been loved by them.
Sarah Swaine, Camelia Dunne, Ann McGrath, Mervyn Maxwell, Kay Byrne, Michael Behan, Bill Cole, Mary Alice Farrell, Bill Hanlon, Tommy Skehan, Therese Price, Mary Sammon, Fran Dooley, Dick Jeffers, Matt Conway, Johnny Phelan, Marie Doyle, Jean Geoghegan, Janelle Gervin, Eugene O'Halloran, Finbar McAlister, Mary Keogh, Jim Motherway, Marion Cole, Olivia Keaveny-James, Gerry Emanuel, Breeda Corry (née Gorman), Maeve Jordan, PJ Bird, Enoch O'Neill, Gerard Askins, David Forrestail, May Hanlon, Patricia McNally, George Prendergast, Geraldine Carroll, Mark Byrne, Madge Byrne (née Berney), Michael Fogarty, Mary Behan, John Talbot, and Thomas Fanning.

May they rest in peace.
