DEATH: - as mentioned last week in these notes the death of Tom Blessington, Lisryan in this parish took place suddenly and unexpected at his home on Friday night, 20th of last week. Tom was predeceased by his wife, Mary, Brother Eugene and Sister, Margaret. We offer sincere sympathy to his heartbroken daughter, Orla and son, Colin, his brothers Michael and Declan, Sisters Marie and Bridget, nieces, nephews, neighbours, extended family and a wide circle of friends. Tom’s Funeral Mass took place in St. Mary’s Church, Boherquill where Mass was concelebrated by Fr. Nigel Charles P.P. and Fr. Simon Cadam, P.P. Granard. Tom’s removal to the church was accompanied by a Guard of Honour from his very many friends and vintage clubs that he was associated with. Tom was laid to rest with his wife, Mary in St. Fintan’s cemetery, Boherquill. May he rest in peace. Tom was very well known and respected having had a lifetime association with the family business, Rhyne Rock.

We ask, especially parents support this great Complex and the volunteers who look after it by purchasing a lotto envelope when you see one, it is only €2 for a line, €5 for 3 lines and an annual envelope to make sure you are in each weeks draw for the year is available for €50. Envelopes available in the shop in Streete, at bingo or if any problem phone Brian 086 2596656. Completed envelopes can be posted in the letterbox in the centre entrance door. “If you’re not in you can’t win”. It could be you this week!

BOHERQUILL RAMBLERS: - The Ramblers walked the Westmeath Way from Jonathan Swift Park at Lilliput to Dysart on Sunday 15 July 2018 with a little light rain and a couple of over-grown stiles to add interest on the way. The road walk back to Lilliput was much easier; wild raspberries were picked and rain stopped before the cup of tea back near Lough Ennell.
