MRS. BRIDGET KEANE, Connolly, 1907


Clare Journal - Monday Evening, Feb. 11, 1907

Her many friends will hear with sincere regret of the death of one of the most respected citizens of the Connolly District, Mrs. Bridget Keane, Kilcolumb at the ripe old age of eighty one years.

The deceased was of a most kind and charitable disposition and sweet and cheerful temperament. Her life was a very edifying one and her peaceful death an illustration of the Scriptural Truth - "That as a man lives, so shall he die."

Last summer she had the pleasure of a prolonged visit from her son, Mr. Denis Keane, a worthy and popular citizen of New Haven, Connecticut, U.S.A., in company with his newly-wed bride.

We tender him, Messrs. Ned and John Keane (sons), Kilcolumb, Mrs. J. Conlon and the various other members of the family our sincere sympathy. The funeral took place on Sunday and it was largely attended. She was interred by the side of her late husband, Michael Keane, in Kilmaley Churchyard, and beneath the magnificent monument erected there by filial affection of Mr. Denis Keane. The prayers at the graveside were said by Rev. W. Scanlan, C.C., Connolly.

The chief mourners were John, Edward and Denis Keane (sons), James Conlon and Michael Breen (sons-in-law), Michael Carney, John Keane, Ennis, Richard Keane, Doora, John Hehir, Denis Keane, Tom Clohessy.

The funeral arrangements were excellently carried out by Messrs. McInerney and Sons, Ennis.
