The local community and traders of Nenagh were this Tuesday mourning the passing of one of the town's best known shop owners, Tony Healy.

Reposing at his home on Wednesday, May 2, from 4pm until 7pm. Funeral arriving on Thursday to St Mary of the Rosary Church, Nenagh for funeral Mass at 12 noon, followed by burial in Lisboney cemetery.
