There is deep sadness this afternoon following the passing of a former Laois school teacher.
Josie Fennelly (née Delaney), from Willsgrove House, Athy, Kildare, was originally from Graigue in Mountmellick.
Mrs Fennelly, a mother of three, would be extremely highly regarded in farming and Macra circles.
She was also a teacher and principal in The Rock NS for many years.
While Josie’s husband Mick is well known in GAA circles and captained Athy to a Kildare County senior football title in 1987.
She is deeply regretted by her aforementioned loving husband Mick and children David, Elaine and Stephanie.
Also by her brothers Marty and P.J, sisters Marie, Sheila, Margaret and Michelle, son-in-law Chaz, brothers-in-law, sisters-in-law, granddaughter Shannon, nieces, nephews, relatives and friends.
A private funeral will take place, due to government advice regarding public gatherings.
Josie’s funeral mass will be live streamed on St. Michael’s Parish Church website on Friday, May 22 at 11am.
Family flowers only please. Donations, if desired, to The Friends of St. Vincent’s Hopsital, Athy.
May Josie Rest in Peace.
