The Late Jimmy Roche, Breahig, Cordal, Castleisland

The death has occurred of Jimmy Roche, Breahig, Cordal, Castleisland, Co. Kerry, suddenly on June 2nd, 2017.

Sadly missed by his heartbroken wife Joan, his family John, Timmy, James and Anne Marie, daughters-in-law, Cathie, Marie and Sharmayne, his adored grandsons James and Sean, brother Ulick, sisters Nora, Helen, Brigid and Anne, all extended family, relatives, neighbours and many friends.

May he rest in Peace

Cordal GAA Club has been dealt a heavy blow – the second in the space of 16 months with the loss of two men who gave the life spans they were granted to the service of the club.

Tom Wrenn died suddenly in March 2016 and now Jimmy Roche.

No doubt but fitting tributes will be paid to Jimmy over the coming days and weeks but his proudest day must surely have been when Uachtarán Chumann Lúthchleas Gael, Aogán Ó Fearghail visited to re-open the completely refurbished Páirc Na gCúlach in Cordal which is dedicated to the memory of his father, John Roche.

Shock at the News

The late Jimmy Roche (68) has also been a long and loyal servant of Castleisland Co-Op Mart throughout its near half century of developments.

Jimmy and his mart colleagues turned out in force just a few short weeks ago at the funeral of staff member Danny McSweeney.

Along with Jimmy’s family, those involved with Cordal GAA Club and Castleisland Co-Op Mart and his many friends are shocked as the news of his sudden death broke earlier today.

May God be good to him.

Funeral Arrangements

Reposing at Tangney’s Funeral Home, Castleisland on Sunday evening from 5pm to 8pm followed by removal to Cordal Church. Requiem Mass on Monday at 12 noon. Burial afterwards in Tobar na bhFionn Cemetery, Cordal.
