DEEPEST SYMPATHIE: - Our deepest sympathies this week go to the Helen and Paul Whelan on the death of Helens mother Eily Gaule last week. A woman of great kindness and generosity the late Eily was a well respected publican who owned Jim Ja’s public house and for the last number of years was a resident of Fr Maher Place Mullinavat. Known in the pub trade far and wide Eily ran a great card house for years along with late husband Sean. A woman of great spirit she will be fondly remembered for her quick wit. On many nights I had the pleasure of watching her dish out some reminders with her cloth placed over her shoulder to those who were over boisterous.
I’m sure loads of people from South Kilkenny and further afield will have fond memories and stories they can relay about her.
I can remember being on a quiz team some years ago when there was an inter pub competition run by Kilkenny Vintners. Some nights we were at home in Jim Ja’s and some nights we had to travel. But whether home or away there was always a pot of tea and a couple of plates of freshly made sandwiches to be taken care of. Eily was getting dialysis over the last period of time but just took it as matter of fact without complaint. She will be missed by her family grandchildren and her neighbours and friends in Fr Maher Place. May she Rest in Peace.
