The death has occurred of John Cronin, 30 St. Stephen’s Park, Castleisland.

An ex Rhyno Mills employee, John passed away on  January 7th. 2018 peacefully at University Hospital Kerry surrounded by his loving nephews and nieces.

Beloved brother of the recently deceased Denis D.D.

Sadly missed by his loving nephews: Denis, Noel and Joe, nieces Noreen, Kay, Mary, Catherine and Martina, grandnephews, grandnieces and great-grandnephew Jamie, relatives, neighbours and friends.

May He Rest In Peace.

John, (76) a gentle man, was better known to his friends and neighbours as Sherwood. He was yet another of his generation to get a life-long tag or nickname from his silver screen heroes when Castleisland had its Astor Cinema.

A regular at Sheila Prendiville’s, his brother DD’s illness and passing early last October had a profound effect on him. May God be good to him.
