The Late Peter Kilmartin - The death occurred peacefully on October 29th at his residence of Peter Kilmartin of Coolowley, Errill. He had been in failing health for some time. He was predeceased by his wife Maureen. Peter is very sadly mourned by his sons P.J. and Donie, daughters Angela, Annette, Catherine and Geraldine, daughters-in-law, sons-in-law, sister-in-law, sister Anne, grandchildren, relatives, neighbours and friends. Reposing was at his home. Removal took place to the Killesmeesta Church. Requiem Mass was celebrated and followed by burial in the adjoining cemetery. May he rest in peace.
Workhouse - The new entrance to Glanbia is very beneficial to all customers of the Glanbia store in Donaghmore. There is a perfect view of the roads with the walls and ditches taken away. The news of all the reconstruction to the workhouse is very welcome. The work will be done in three phases and will entail the old dining hall and chapel of the workhouse. All details will appear later in this paper of the huge job to be undertaken.
