figure in the business life of Athlone was Hon President of
the Athlone Architectural Heritage Group. We were indeed very
privileged to have Jimmy as a member and his passion for the
preservation of Athlone's heritage (such as the Fr Mathew
Hall) was an inspiration to us all.

Pauls Church on Monday, 7th of March, Jimmy was laid to rest
in Cornamagh Cemetery. Ar dheis de go raibh an anam.
