Com­mu­ni­ties bid sad farewell to Aileen

Bray People - - NEWS -

THE com­mu­ni­ties of Aughrim and Ark­low bid a sad farewell to lo­cal woman Aileen Newsome who passed away un­ex­pect­edly.

Daugh­ter of Mau­reen and the late Wil­liam Newsome of Red­nagh Road, Aughrim Aileen was just 52 years of age when she died.

She grew up in a large fam­ily and was the tomboy, al­ways out play­ing with her brothers and well able to keep up with what­ever chal­lenge they set her or game they played. Aileen who was bet­ter known as Mags amongst her friends at­tended school in Sa­cred Heart N.S. and later Ark­low Com­mu­nity Col­lege. It was dur­ing her schooldays that she met her clos­est friends Bernie, Marie and Ann with whom she shared many happy times and ad­ven­tures.

Af­ter school Aileen com­pleted sil­ver ser­vice wait­ress train­ing in col­lege in Gal­way where she achieved a City & Guilds cer­tifi­cate.

From there she gained em­ploy­ment in the Sligo Park Ho­tel and later moved to Dublin where she worked in an ex­clu­sive mem­bers club on Mer­rion Square.

Sadly, Aileen's ca­reer was cut short fol­low­ing a se­ri­ous road ac­ci­dent which re­quired her to give up work and com­plete months of re­ha­bil­i­ta­tion.

She moved home to Aughrim for a time and later into Ark­low to Win­de­mere Av­enue, Inbhear Mór Park.

The move to Ark­low town was a pos­i­tive one for Aileen who made many cher­ished friends who were very sad to hear of her death.

Aileen was laid to rest in Annacurra Ceme­tery fol­low­ing funeral mass in the Sa­cred Heart Church, Aughrim.

She was pre­de­ceased by her fa­ther Wil­liam and brother Joe and is sur­vived by her mother Mau­reen and sib­lings Mary, Liam, Pat, Paul, John, Peter and An­thony.

May she rest in peace.

The late Aileen Newsome.
