RIP

Rest in Peace

A much loved and gentle lady has gone from our midst and has entered eternal life. Breda Ryall lived all her life in Kilbraghan, Kilmanagh.


Her death has caused shock and sadness to all who knew her. A loyal and committed member of our parish community, Breda will be sorely missed especially in the PAL Club which she co-founded and helped to make it a viable and active organisation.


When the ICA was in its heyday, Breda was gifted in the art of crafts and she shared her expertise with her fellow members.
In the early days of the PAL Club, she organised the annual outings which included members and non-members.


Breda was an extraordinary person. Her kindness and jovial good humour were wonderful attributes in the successful running of a club or any organisation. In truth, she personified everything that is good.


Every Sunday Breda attended Mass in St Molua’s Church, Killaloe. Afterwards, she always had time for a chat with her friends.
The attendance on both occasions of her obsequies bore testimony to the love and respect everyone had for Breda.


A great number of sympathisers passed through the funeral parlour to offer their condolences to her nearest and dearest. Her Requiem Mass was celebrated by Very Rev Fr Liam Taylor and assisted by Fr Benignus, OFM Cap.
Afterwards her burial took place in St Mary’s Cemetery, Ballykeeffe.


Incidentally the parish choir with organist Michael Hayes sang beautifully throughout the Mass.
Sympathy is expressed to her brother Jim, Pottlerath, sisters in law Beenie, Ballycallan, Galatia, Pottlerath, Nellie Kilbraghan, nieces and nephews, relatives and many friends.
She is pre-deceased by her brothers Tom, Sam and Oliver. Breda, may your gentle soul rest in the peace of the Lord.
