Recent Deaths.
The death has taken place of Mary King (nee Kierse), Laghtagoona, Corofin, formerly of Dromina, Dysart, at the age of 97 years. Mary was the last surviving sibling of a family of eight.  She met her late husband, Mick King, from Kilmihil, when he came to work in Ballycashin and they set up home in Dromina in 1958, where they raised their 8 children.
In 2005 she relocated to Corofin with her daughter, Mary, Mary's husband Martin &  family, however she maintained a strong bond with her friends made in Dromina over the fifty years she had lived there.  She enjoyed nothing more than family get-togethers where her talented family sang and played music, indeed her son, P.J. even penned a special tune for her 'Mary from Whitemount', which he played on the 'box'.
Her interests were wide and varied, when she lived in Dromina, she was a member of the Toonagh Cumann of Fianna Fáil, she had a great love of animals and of flowers and her sense of style was greatly admired. Her grandchildren and great-grandchildren held a very special place in her heart.
Mary's remains reposed in St. Tola's Church, Dysart and, following concelebrated requiem mass, she was laid to rest in Dysart Graveyard. She is survived by her daughters Anna (Purcell), Mary (Hansen O'Donoghue), Aileen (McMahon), sons Michael, P.J., Noel, Martin and John, sons in law, daughters in law, 21 grandchildren, 19 great grandchildren, extended family and friends.
    The death also occurred last week of Michael Fitzgibbons, aged 86, of Ballygriffey, in Cahercalla Nursing Home. Michael was the youngest of four boys, including Denis, Donal and Thomas born to Daniel and Delia, all of whom have predeceased him. He farmed the home farm in Ballygriffey until ill health forced him to retire.  He was a great follower of the G.A.A.  and he drove to Cusack Park on his tractor to watch games over the years.  He had been a resident of Cahercalla Nursing Home in later years.
Michael's remains were removed from Kennedy's Funreal Home, Ennis to St. Tola's Church, Dysart and following requiem mass, he was laid to rest in Drumcliffe Graveyard.
He is survived by his sister in law, May, nieces, nephew, extended family and friends.
