Glenties Notes on March 22nd 2001

The death took place at his home early on Tuesday morning 13th February 2001 of Seamus Mc Closkey, Lower Main Street, Glenties and formerly of Dunkineely. His remains were brought to St. Connell’s Church on Thursday morning for Requiem Mass, which was celebrated by Fr. Nigel Ó Gallachóir C.C. Glenties, assisted by Fr. Shay Casey, Chaplain to Athlone Instititute of Technology. Readings were by Mary and Joseph Mc Closkey, daughter and son of Seamus. Two other sons, Conor and John read Prayers of the Faithful and the Gifts were brought to the Altar by Seamus’ sister, Kathleen and his eldest son Donal. Music was by Sr. Immaculata on the organ. Burial took place in the New Cemetery. Sincere sympathy is extended to his wife, Zeta and family, Donal, Mary, John, Conor and Joseph, sister, Kathleen, sisters-in-law, brothers-in-law, other relatives and friends.

Everyone was shocked to hear about the death of Charlie Bennett, in New York yesterday. A native of Ardara he was Chairman of Donegal County Council and was known over a wide area. A few years ago he was Donegal Person of the Year. On St. Patrick’s Day he led the Donegal section of the Parade down Fifth Avenue, New York and was taking part in another parade in Brooklyn on Sunday when he was taken ill.

The death took place recently of Annie Gallagher (nee O’Haire) Castlefin, wife of Vinnie and sister of Barney O ‘Haire, Derries.

The death took place also of James Mc Loone in Manchester, brother of Francie Mc Loone, Banganbouy.
