Bailieborough News Thursday 17th October 2019

Bailieborough News. October 14th  2019. Matthew J. Cullen.

Mr. Tommy McEntee: Tommy McEntee, 83, from Lisnalea, Bailieborough, passed away suddenly but peacefully on Monday, the 30th of September 2019 in Cavan General Hospital.

Tommy was a devoted husband of fifty four years to Veronica, and the most wonderful father to Bernard, PJ, Gloria, Terry and Jason. He adored his eleven grand-children and eight great grand-children. Tommy had a close relationship with his younger brother Philip, who lives in Kerry. He is also survived by sisters Lena, Susan, Kay, and brothers, Eugene, Gerard and Christy,  daughters in-law, Shirley and Caroline, son in-law, Stephen, nieces, nephews and extended family and friends. Tommy will be sadly missed by all.

In recent years Tommy suffered with heart problems, resulting in frequent admissions to hospital. He had tremendous respect for the staff in Cavan General, and appreciated their hard work; so much so, that he rewarded them with a daily dose of his jokes and trickery. No matter how unwell he felt, his mission was to make people smile and laugh.

Tommy began his life in Nolagh, Shercock where he was born and reared with his seven brothers and four sisters by their parents Anne and Terence. He attended Corlatty Carroll National School, going straight from there into his first place of employment in Killanny, working as a farmhand. He went from there to a farm in Armagh, and then back to his home town to work for a local farmer named Lexi Hall. In his early thirties he found employment with Cavan County Council as the Water Caretaker in Bailieborough, where he remained for twenty five years until his early retirement.

Tommy and Veronica lived in Drumbannon when their family were young. In those days Tommy’s interests revolved around his children. The simple things like forest walks, days out fishing, picnics on Lough An Leagh Mountain, beach holidays, and even, star gazing on a summer’s night. These were the things that made him a happy man.

Tommy discovered he had green fingers when he and Veronica moved to Lisnalea after his retirement. They spent most of their free time working to maintain their beautiful gardens, where they enjoyed many happy days sitting in the sunshine surrounded by their colourful blooms.

Tommy loved his life and was happiest when surrounded by his family. He had enough love to share between each and every one of them. He will stay in their hearts forever.

Tommy’s Funeral Mass took place in St. Anne’s Church on Wednesday, October 2nd –at which Fr. Ultan McGoohan P.P. officiated—and following which, his remains were laid to rest in St. Anne’s Cemetery.
