We, the family of the late Mary (Mona) Nugent of Briencan, Ballymore Eustace, would like to thank most sincerely all who svmpathised with us on the sad loss of our dear mother.
To all who sent mass cards, perpetual enrolments, letters of sympathy or floral tributes. Sincere thanks to the doctors and nurses of Naas Hospital for their kindness and attention to our mother. To the Matron and staff of St Vincent’s Hospital, Athv; Monsignor Wilson and the alter servers, Shay and Margaret Eustace for making the final Mass so special for Mammy.
To Hughes Funeral Directors who carried out the funeral arrangements in such a professional and caring manner. To Chris Douglas - her care and love over the past few years was so much appreciated by all of us. To Anne Jennings, her kindness to Mam and visits to the hospital will be remembered always. Heartfelt thanks to all our wonderful neighbours on the Naas Road, to Dr O’Brien and the nurses at the Health Centre, Bme, the Senior Citizen’s Committee and Naas Care of the Aged.
A sincere thanks to close relatives, neighbours and friends who helped and supported us during our difficult days and to those who travelled long distances to attend the Removal, Funeral Mass and Burial.
It would be impossible to thank everyone individually. Please accept this acknowledgement as a token of our genuine appreciation. The Holy Sacrifice of The Mass will be offered for your intentions – The Nugent Family.

Heartfelt thanks to all the people of Ballymore and surrounding areas who so generously supported the Annual Coffee Morning for St. Brigid’s Hospice held in The Thatch recently.
Thanks to Darren for the use of the Thatch. Thanks to everyone who baked cakes, scones, apple tarts, lemon cakes and carrot cakes. Thanks to everyone who supported the raffle, both on the morning and later on at the Bingo, by giving prizes, selling and buying tickets.
A total of 1335 euro was raised and donated to the Hospice. Be assured that the monies raised will be put to good use.
The friends of St. Brigid’s Hospice.
The children of Scoil Mhuire, particularly those preparing for First Holy Communion have already enjoyed two Children’s Masses. Thanks to Monsignor Wilson for his help and patience in celebrating these special masses. Thanks also to Larry for leading the singing with his harmonious guitar playing.

These masses help the children of 2nd class to prepare for the sacrament of First Holy Communion with the encouragement of their whole community.
We welcome children of all ages to create a Choir for the Children’s Masses.
We extend our sympathy to the family of the late Marjorie Ronaldson whose funeral took place on the 13th Oct 2009. She lived in the Ballymore area for over 50 years and in that time was well known for her kindness and generosity. She gave freely of her time, shopping for friends, visiting sick folk, raising her family, and most dear to her babysitting her grandchildren. Gardening was her hobby and passion.
Her tennis parties were famous not so much for the tennis, but for the magnificent teas she always produced, especially her chocolate and sponge cakes that had an inch of cream separating the layers. The tea trolley was always set when anyone paid her a visit!
Underneath her sunny disposition lay a tough streak as witnessed by two burglars who attempted to pay her a visit. Living on her own and recently recovering from a hip operation she gave them quick dispatch armed only with her walking stick.
She will be greatly missed by all who knew her. May she rest in Peace.
