Mr. Jim Salter
The death occurred on Thursday March 8th of Jim Salter , 5 Green Hills, Carlow, and formerly of Rathcrogue and St Joseph's Tce Tinryland. Jim, who was 73, had been unwell for some time, but bore his illness with great courage. He was cared for with loving kindness by his wife Margaret, and the nursing staff of The Sacred Home Carlow. Jim worked in the Sugar factory for over 40 years, and was known as a very loyal and honest employee. His contribution to voluntary organisations was legendary. In the 60's he served as secretary to Tinryland G.F.C. For over 30 years he served as both Chairman and President of Tinryland Athletic Club, and he helped out for many years in the running of the annual Rockford road race. Jim was an excellent chairman during his long term of office conducting the monthly committee meetings in his own unique, efficient style. He was the voice of the club at sports meetings, road races and his clear voice made him an automatic selection as the person who manned the public address system at county championships. He was also a life-long member of the Fine Gael party which provided a guard of honour at the removal of his remains. He was active in the Green Hills residents association, and helped out in later years with the meals on wheels organisation. He will be sadly missed by his wife Margaret, brother Frank and his relatives and friends. He was pre-deceased by his brother Oliver. His remains were removed from Healys funeral home on Friday to Askea Church. He was interred in St Mary's cemetery on Saturday March 10th.
Mr. Har Corcoran
The death took place on Sunday March 18th of Har Corcoran of Ballybar Lower. Har, who was aged 84 years, spent most of his working life in Coles of Ballybar. A keen lover of animals and gardening, Har also enjoyed the occasional drink. He is survived by his brothers Ned (Talbot Terrace), John (England), sisters Maureen (Chapelstown), Bridie (England), Chris (England) and Lil (Australia), sisters-in-law, brothers-in-law, nieces, nephews, relatives and friends. Remains were reposing at Carpenter Bros Funeral Home, Barrack St., Carlow from 6pm on Monday March 19th with prayers at 8pm. Removal took place on Tuesday at 6.30pm to St. Joseph’s Church, Tinryland, arriving at 7pm. Requiem Mass was held on Wednesday March 21st at 11am, followed by burial in the adjoining cemetery.
The death took place at Waterford Regional Hospital of Joseph (Joe) Hendrick, Quinnagh, Blackbog Road , Carlow on Thursday March 8, 2012.
Joe originally lived at no. 2 College Street, Carlow before moving to live at Quinnagh, Carlow in the Parish of Tinryland. While living there he met his future wife Margaret (Peg) Sheehan. They were married in Tinryland Church by Fr. James J. Dunny P.P. Tinryland, and a beautiful photograph of the occasion occupies centre place in their home in Quinnagh. Joe spent his working life at the Irish Sugar Factory, Carlow where he was a master craftsman and shared his skills and talents in training apprentices and fellow workers. He took great pride in his work and followed the progress of his trainees with great satisfaction. To have been an apprentice at the factory and been allocated to training with Joe the master craftsman was regarded as the highest achievement.The large attendance at his funeral services by his former work colleagues, neighbours, friends and parishioners was testament of appreciation of the man and his life.
His remains were removed to St. Joseph’s Church Tinryland on March 9 and received by Fr. Tom Little P.P. His Funeral Mass was celebrated by Fr. Liam Morgan C.C. on March 10, and burial took place afterwards at the adjoining cemetery.
