The Corkman - - NEWS - MARIA HERLIHY

TRIB­UTES were paid to the late FG stal­wart, Ann Dun­lea at the Blar­ney Mac­room mu­nic­i­pal dis­trict meet­ing on Fri­day with Cllr Ted Lucey (FG) say­ing that she rep­re­sented the town coun­cil and was known for her dili­gence.

Ms Dun­lea’s brother, Con, was co-opted to the coun­cil and he too served for 31 years.

“My sin­cere con­do­lence to her hus­band Michael and seven daugh­ters. She is a great loss to the com­mu­nity. I want to ex­press my con­do­lence on Ann’s pass­ing, “said Cllr Lucey.

Cllr Michael Creed (FG) along with all coun­cil­lors of­fered their sym­pa­thy.

The late Ann Dun­lea (nee Kelle­her) of Lough­leigh, Car­ri­gadro­hid passed away on Sun­day, Septem­ber 17 at Cork Uni­ver­sity Hospi­tal. She was the beloved wife of Michael and mother to Deirdre, Michelle, Ron­nie, Gráinne, Jill, Jean and Pa­tri­cia and the sis­ter of the late Judy Kelle­her. She will also be greatly missed by her broth­ers Con and Jerry, sis­ter Mar­garet, sons-in-law Tom, Colm, Ciaran, Dean and Domh­nall, her 12 grand­chil­dren, sis­ters-in-law, broth­ers-in-law, nieces, neph­ews, rel­a­tives, neigh­bours and friends.

Min­is­ter of Agri­cul­ture, Food and the Marine, Michael Creed noted this week in his weekly di­ary that one of the few draw­backs of his of­fice is that he is bound to his di­ary with­out es­cape. “This presents dif­fi­cult sit­u­a­tions when it is un­avoid­able to miss an un­fore­seen event. This was the case when I couldn’t attend the fu­neral of my dear friend and loyal sup­porter, Ann Dun­lea, Rest In Peace. Ann’s unique sense of hu­mour al­ways made the many hours we can­vassed to­gether a rare joy dur­ing tense cam­paigns. She will be a huge loss to her for­mi­da­ble fam­ily and be­yond,” he wrote.
