Heartfelt tears will be freely flowing this morning in tribute to Lorraine Bolger, Ballynagrallagh, Adamstown, whose Funeral Mass takes place in St. Mary and Michael’s Parish Church, New Ross at 11am with burial afterwards in Raheen Cemetery.
Ms. Bolger, (in her 40’s) died tragically in a road traffic collision on the N25 at Gaulstown, Glenmore, last Wednesday evening.
Lorraine was a telecommunications and IT worker and there is added tragedy as her husband Séamus Ó Cualáin, a metalwork teacher at Coláiste an Atha, Kilmuckridge, passed away last October following an illness.
Raheen Parish Committee has paid tribute to Ms Bolger.; “All our hearts go out to Lorraine’s daughter Ashling at this terrible time. Nothing we can say will make this any easier. Just know that we are thinking of you at this time.
“We think also of Lorraine’s Parents Joe and Marie, Lorraine’s sister Collette and the extended Bolger and O’Cualain families.
“Lorraine was a valued member of our committee for many years. She served as Vice-Treasurer and in more recent times held the post of Treasurer. Her support for Raheen was steadfast and along her daughter Ashling and late husband Seamus, provided refreshments for many fundraisers through the years. As a family, great pride was taken in displaying the latest additions to Fraochoileain Farm at the local field day. It was always obvious that family came first. This was a joy to watch.” R.I.P.
