A Sad Week

Bray People - - DIARY -

WHAT a sad week for the com­mu­nity of Kil­macanogue with 5 be­reave­ments. Michael Kelly died peace­fully at home sur­rounded by his lov­ing fam­ily. Michael was the beloved hus­band of the late Rita and he was laid to rest last Mon­day in St. Mo­chonog’s Ceme­tery. Deep­est sym­pa­thy to his lov­ing sons Stephen and Michael, Daugh­ters Noeleen, Fiona, Tracy and Siobhain, sons and daugh­ters in law, grand­chil­dren and the ex­tended fam­ily. On the same week­end, young War­ren Coster Coogan also died trag­i­cally. War­ren was a very pop­u­lar young man when he moved to our com­mu­nity where he lived with his Aun­tie, Michelle Dal­ton and he was a keen mem­ber of Kil­macanogue GAA Club and an avid Manch­ester United FC sup­porter. He will be sadly missed by his par­ents Yvonne and War­ren snr, brothers, sis­ters, cousins, rel­a­tives and a large cir­cle of friends, many of which he made in Kil­macanogue. His fu­neral mass took place in En­niskerry last Wed­nes­day fol­lowed by cre­ma­tion in Mount Jerome Cre­ma­to­rium. Then on Sun­day morn­ing, Kil­macanogue was sad­dened to hear that we had lost one of our grand old ladies when Madge Ma­her passed away peace­fully sur­rounded by her lov­ing fam­ily. Madge was a much loved per­son in this com­mu­nity, al­ways had a greeting and a friendly face top any­one that had the plea­sure to know her and our com­mu­nity is a sad­der place with­out her pres­ence. She was the beloved wife of the late Paddy and she will be missed by her daugh­ters Mar­garet, Anne, Joan, Sadie, Pa­tri­cia, Deirdre and Sharon, sons Fred­die, An­thony and Pa­trick, all her dev­as­tated grand­chil­dren and great grand­chil­dren upon whom she adored and the ex­tended fam­ily and friends. A huge crowd gath­ered last Tues­day morn­ing to pay their fi­nal re­spects to Madge which is hoped will pro­vide some com­fort to the fam­ily and to tes­tify just how much she was loved in this com­mu­nity. On Fri­day morn­ing, news came through that Paddy Hig­gins had passed away peace­fully. The “Man from Mayo” was much loved in these parts and gave great ser­vice to Kil­macanogue GAA Club and was a bril­liant Gael. What most would not know also, Paddy was a great Derby County fan and trav­elled over to sup­port that great team in the 70s which was man­aged by Brian Clough in their golden era. A very qui­etly spo­ken man, he was known to us all in Kil­macanogue and he will be sadly missed by his friends (and drink­ing bud­dies in the Glen­cor­mac Inn). Deep­est sym­pa­thy is ex­tended to his wife Kath­leen, Richard, Pam, An­nette, Pa­tri­cia and Marie (and also re­mem­ber­ing the late Bar­bara), grand­chil­dren and great grand­chil­dren, Sis­ters and Brothers in law, nieces and neph­ews and his many friends in Wick­low and his na­tive Mayo. Paddy’s re­mains were brought to St. Mo­chonog’s Church for prayers Mon­day evening be­fore re­moval to Mayo on Tues­day and mass to­day (Wed) where he will be laid to rest in Kil­fian Ceme­tery. Fi­nally, on Fri­day evening (18th), Al Hop­kins, for­mally of Glen­cor­mac and Bray, passed away peace­fully at St. Vin­cent’s Univer­sity Hos­pi­tal sur­rounded by his lov­ing fam­ily. Al was the beloved hus­band of Brid­get and lov­ing fa­ther of John, He­len and Alan and he will be sadly missed by all in­clud­ing his sis­ters Pa­tri­cia and Elsie, his son and daugh­ters in law, grand­chil­dren, sis­ters in law and the ex­tended cir­cle of fam­ily and friends. His fu­neral mass took place yes­ter­day (Tues) in St. Fer­gals Church and he was laid to rest in St. Mo­chonog’s Ceme­tery af­ter­wards. May all their Souls Rest in Peace and we shall re­mem­ber them fondly.
