Lorrha Notes

Late Fintan Dolan.

The death occurred on Tuesday October 6th. peacefully after a relatively short illness at his residence of Fintan Dolan Abbeyville Lorrha.
A motor mechanic by trade Fintan carried out a successful business in Abbeyville for a long number of years and this brought him in touch with many from not just the parish but from all over. In his younger years he played hurling with his club and retained that interest over the years when he finished on the field of play. Another sporting interest was golf which he continued to play right up to just weeks before his death. A popular and well know member of the community he will be sadly missed by all who knew him but in particular by his family. Pre deceased by his son Alan he is survived by his wife Mary sons David Colm and Brian daughter in-law Sinead granddaughter Emma sisters brothers in-law aunts nephews nieces relatives and a wide circle of friends to whom sympathy is offered.
