The Late Padraic Stapleton -
The death occurred on 16th February of Padraic Stapleton, Ballycurrane, Thurles following an accident. Aged 22 years he was well known in the Thurles area and a most popular young man. Following Requiem Mass in Two-Mile-Borris Church the burial took place in the local cemetery. Clergy in attendance at the Mass were Fr. Pat Coffey (Thurles) Chief Celebrant; His Grace Most Rev. Dr. Dermot Clifford, Archbishop of Cashel & Emly; Fr. Martin Hayes, Adm. Thurles; Fr. Lar Dunphy and Fr. Oliver Maher (both Urlingford); Fr. Jimmy O’Donnell (Cashel T.J.); Fr. George Bourke P.P. and Fr. Joe Tynan C.C. (both Moycarkey-Borris). The tragic circumstances of his death caused much grief in Thurles and the surrounding areas and the attendance at his funeral testified to that with an overflowing crowd present. Sincere sympathy is extended to his parents, John and Bridget (nee Maher, Skehana), Brid (sister), his aunts, uncles, grandfather, relatives and a very large circle of friends. May God comfort them on their great loss. Rest in peace.
