Beloved teacher passes away

The Kerryman (North Kerry) - - COM­MU­NITY NEWS -

MANY past pupils of the late ‘60s of the Bal­ly­hear­ney Na­tional School, Valen­tia, will have fond mem­o­ries of a young teacher from near Achill Is­land in Mayo by the name of Mary Gal­lagher, who taught there in those years.

Later to as­sume the mar­ried name of O’Mal­ley, she was the niece of the late Paddy Gal­lagher of Mayo and Valen­tia, and the daugh­ter of late par­ents Fianna Fáil TD Denis Gal­lagher and his wife Han­nah.

Sadly, her death oc­curred in her mid-60s on Sun­day March 25. She passed away peace­fully at The Mayo Univer­sity Hos­pi­tal. She resided at Coslough, Cur­rane, Achill, and by all ac­counts was a very dili­gent com­mu­nity ac­tivist up there. Sin­cere sym­pa­thy to her hus­band John; her chil­dren Sinead, JD, Damh­nait, Ro­nan, Don­n­chadh and Diar­muid; sons & daugh­ters-in-law; grand­chil­dren; sib­lings; and ex­tended fam­ily. Thanks for the great child­hood mem­o­ries Mary agus go ndéana Dia tro­caire ort

The late Mary O’Mal­ley (née Gal­lagher).
