Recent Death.
The death has occurred of Patricia (Pat) O'Connor, nee O'Sullivan, of Ardcarney, Ruan, at St. Theresa's Nursing Home, Kilrush, after a long illness borne without complaint. 
Pat didn't care to be the centre of attention, she was happiest working in the background, catering for the needs of her family, doing what had to be done to get a job done. She and her husband, Christy, were married in September, 1967. She was a hard and diligent worker, she took care of her father-in-law, Johnnie O'Connor for many years up to his death. She worked in the Old Ground, Queen's and West County Hotels, all the while running the home. She was a welcoming host to anyone who called to her home and she had a great sense of humour and fun . She was a loyal supporter of Ruan Hurling Club, where her children played, and, indeed, still play hurling and camogie at various stages, and for many years the clothesline was filled with club jerseys.
Pat had a great many friends who took her on day trips and she also looked forward to her yearly holiday in Lahinch with the Senior Citizens. Her grandchildren were a source of great pride for Pat and she had a relationship with each of them, keeping up with what was happening on the social, sports and education side of their lives and she also enjoyed playing cards with them.
Pat had been ill with Multiple Scelerosis for the past twenty years and her family relate that it was her deep faith that gave her comfort, she was never one to complain and asked for nothing. 
Pat's requiem mass was celebrated in St. Mary's Church, Ruan, following which she was laid to rest in the adjoining graveyard. She is survived by her husband, Christy, daughters Marie, Sandra and Noreen, sons Aidan, Kieran and Niall, sons in law, daughters in law, grandchildren, brothers, Michael, Patrick and Donal, sisters Nonie and Mary, extended family and friends.
The death has also occurred of Jim Joe Morgan of Maurices Mills at University Hospital, Limerick. He is survived by his sister Margaret, nephews, nieces, relatives and neighbours. Following requiem mass in St. Tola's Church, Dysart, his remains were removed to Shannon Crematorium.
The death has also taken place, peacefully, of Christina Duffy (nee Hayes) of Kilkee East, Ruan in Boston, U.S.A. She is survived by her brother Joe, in Kilkee East, sister Lily, sons Peter and Michael, daughters Mary and Christina, all in Boston, where she was laid to rest.
