On Sunday morning last a dark cloud spread all over our parish as the sad news of the death of our good friend Mary Donohue began to spread. While we were all fully aware of Mary's illness that she bravely fought for the last 15 months, Everyone was saddened and stunned when we became aware that Mary had peacefully passed away. Mary was a super person, a person who's advice was always well thought out and her wisdom and judgement was trusted by everyone who knew her. Mary was a great Kilmore supporter and despite her illness she was a very proud lady as she attended our Dinner dance in February and was present to witness John & Ben receive their County medals. There is no doubt she was also very proud as just over 24 hours before she departed this life, her son Daniel captained the Kilmore U-16 team in the County final in Boyle. To her hsuband Bernard, sons Ben, John & Daniel, her sisters, her extended family and her many friends we extend our deepest sympathy.Ar deis De go raibh a hanam.  As a mark of respect to Mary our senior championship game against Clann na nGael was postponed and our 50/50 draw was also postponed.
