SYMPATHY: Deepest sympathy is extended to the family of the late Dan Sheahan, R,I.P. Holly Park, Kilcornan, who passed away on Wednesday December 7 in Milford Care Centre after a long illness bravely borne. . Dan is deeply regretted and sadly missed by his loving family, relatives, neighbours and his many friends. Dan was a great community and church supporter and aside from his family his passion was hurling, especially Limerick hurling. His assessments on the state of our County teams and selections will be missed by the 'expert' group in the Church yard after 11 am Mass on Sundays. We remember his smiling face at every function in the Parish behind his camera on which he produced video recordings of many occasions. He was laid to rest in Kilcornan after Requiem Mass in St. John the Baptist Church last Saturday. Ar Deis Dé
