Recent Deaths.
The death took place last week of Simon Moroney of Hazelgrove, Ruan, at his home, at the age of 91 years.   Simon worked as assistant Land Steward on the farm at Our Lady's Hospital, Ennis, for many years, until his retirement twenty six years ago.   He continued to keep a garden at the home he shared with his wife, Eileen.   He was known for his neat ways and his thoroughness in gardening - he was never happier than when he was working the land.   His sense of humour and his dry wit were enjoyed by those he came in contact with. 
 Simon's remains were removed from his home on Thursday morning to St. Mary's Church, Ruan, and, following concelebrated requiem Mass, he was laid to rest in the adjoining Graveyard.  
He is survived by his, wife, Eileen, daughters, Marianne, Helen, Dympna, Geraldine, Claire and Noelette, sons in law, grandchildren, great grandchildren, sister in law, extended family and many friends.
The death has also taken place of Michael Hynes of Aughrimkelly, Ruan in the Regional Hospital, Limerick, last week. Michael spent his life farming, and he had a special interest in breeding horses and kept good mares.   He often sold show and work horses at the Fair in Ballinasloe and he also bred his own cattle. 
He and his wife, Maud, have been residents of Pairc na Coille in Ennis for the past few years.  His remains were removed from Kennedy's Funeral Home to St. Mary's Church, Ruan, and, following requiem Mass, he was laid to rest in the local graveyard.    
Michael is survived by his wife, Maud, daughter, Mary, son, Michael, sister in law, extended family and friends. 
The death has also taken place of Lena Griffin of Maurice's Mills, mother of Bridie Finn, Ardcarney.
