A HEARTBREAKING FAREWELL TO GARDA DAVID
THERE WAS deep sadness in Bray as Garda David Hannon was laid to rest last week.
A Bray native, Garda Hannon (32) was a garda stationed in Mullingar, Co Westmeath, and lived in Ballymore. A large number of mourners attended his funeral at St Peter’s Church in Bray last Friday before he was laid to rest at Shanganagh cemetery.
He is survived by his wife Treasa, their three children, his parents Carmel and Dinny, his sister Kirstie, his grandmother Brigid, and many relatives and friends.
His sister said this week that he ‘was the life and soul of every party.’

Sumo runners will get to take part in sumo yoga, they will get a Renault Ireland goodie bag, enjoy a performance by Bray Gospel Choir, and more.
‘ Thank you to the community of Bray for your continued support and helping to support families in the local area and further afield,’ said a spokesman for Purple House.
