Death of Mrs. Henry Daly.

The friends of the late Mr. Thomas Drew, of Ennistymon, and Miss Daly of the
same place, will regret to learn of the death of Mrs. Henry Daly, whose
remains were interred in the Melbourne general cemetery lately on June the
funeral being numerously attended by leading residents and brother officers
of Mr. Daly. .................. wreaths .... one from Mr. A. O'Loughlin,
Cleck of the Ennistymon Union, and one from Mrs. Freehill, Sydney, wife of
the Spanish Consul, and daughter of the late Dr. Tim Molony, who was a
fellow student of Mrs. Daly's. Mrs. Daly left her father's home for
Australia in 1852, and was married in 1856 to Mr. Henry Daly, son of Mr.
Francis Daly
, of Ennistymon, and grandson of the late Mr. Francis Daly, of
Ennis, who was at one time a leading solicitor in Clare. Mr. Daly not many
years ago was promoted from the rank of District-Inspector of Police to that
of Superintendant, the highest rank in the service, and placed in charge of
Gippaland, but he is now retired, and we understand that he intends shortly visiting his native
country, and scenes of his youth.
