The death has occurred of Paud Moriarty (78) Glountane, Cordal, Castleisland, Co. Kerry, September 6th 2017, peacefully in the loving care of the staff of Our Lady of Lourdes Nursing Home, Kilcummin.

Predeceased by his parents Jer and Mollie, brothers Sean and Jerry, sisters Eileen and Noreen. Sadly missed by his loving brother Batty in Cordal and sisters: Kathleen and Hannah in London and Maureen O’Sullivan and Josephine Horan in Scartaglin; brothers-in-law, sister-in-law, nephews, nieces, all extended family, relatives, neighbours and friends. May He Rest In Peace.

Filling his Pipe

I don’t know what Paud Moriarty died of but I bet you it wasn’t of stress. To watch Paud filling, lighting and drawing on his pipe inside the window of Skevenas Bar was a study in pure enjoyment.

A man of few words, his other passion in life was a game of 31 – at which he was at his sharpest. There were no extremes of emotion from Paud whether he won, lost or drew.

I have several photographs of him over the years and the pipe is always there, in hand or mouth or on a table in front of him. May God be good to him.
