During the recent Funeral Mass of the late Con O’Sullivan of Carriganima Village who was known far and wide as a true gentleman, a wonderfully dedicated Postman supreme and one who fulfilled many hugely impressive roles – a magnificent tribute was delivered by members of Con’s Family.   Here we share the beautiful feature which appeared in last week’s “Corkman” in the Clondrohid Notes.   We thank Con’s Daughter, Mary (who so superbly supported Con especially in his later years within a very welcoming home setting) for also sharing a number of images showing Con in his renowned Postman’s role and also his great love and care of pet dogs.   We extend our sincere sympathy to the entire O’Sullivan Family on the sad departure of Con to his Eternal Reward.  R.I.P..  Ar dheis Dé go raibh a anam dílis.   Click on the images to enlarge.  (S.R.)
