MR. J. Ryan: The death occurred in the District Hospital, Carlow on Monday last of Johnny Ryan of Graiguenaspideog. Johnny, who was 76 years, had been unwell for 12 months. He farmed in Graiguenaspideog with his brother Tommy. He was known as a decent, straight, honest and hardworking farmer. He was well liked in the farming community and worked with great skill and methodology. In his young days, he was actively involved with the GAA and played for both Tinryland and the Fighting Cocks. Players of his vintage describe him as a character on both panels who contributed to the craic and the general comradery with a great sense of humour. Both clubs provided a guard of honour at the removal of his remains and at the internment.
His remains were removed from Kearney’s Funeral Home, Fenagh to St. Joseph’s Church, Tinryland on Wednesday last. He was interred in the local cemetery after Requiem Mass on Thursday. He is survived by his brother Tommy, his relatives from Rathanna and his many friends.
