Title: Ballyvaughan Obituary lookup needed.
Post by: grizzly1 on Friday 16 August 19 22:06 BST (UK)
Hi, Im hoping that someone could possibly lookup the details of an Obituary for a Mary O'Loughlin who died in December 1942 aged 42, her address at the time was given as Main St, and she is interned in Ballyvaughan Graveyard along with other family member's.

Im specifically interested/ hoping that there may be a mention of a brother 'Edward'.

Thank you.

Sorry folk's I should have made it clearer, I have her death records/certificate, I also know (through this Forum) that she died in December 1942 aged 42 from a brain tumour at Enistymon.
Interned in the grave with her at Ballyvaughan graveyard was John O'Loughlin, Cornelius died 2010, Patrick Main St April 1952.

Basically I was hoping that someone may have access to newspaper death obituaries for Dec 1942 for Mary O'Loughlin, (possibly maiden name Burns)..I was hoping that there may have been a mention of a brother called 'Edward Burns' in the 'death/acknowledgement' notice.

I did pay a visit to the Pearse St archive and had a look at the Clare Champion Newspaper for the time but had no luck.

Still can't find her, not everyone has a death notice.
What date in Dec, maybe I can find her by browsing

That's correct Hallmark, and as we covered in another thread when Edward mentions his sisterMrs  Mary O 'Loughlin as his next of kin when he enlisted in the Free State army in 1922.

I was hoping that he may have been mentioned on her death notice in the media from 1942 which sometimes occurs, Edward didnt die until 1977 in Dublin, and again I was hoping that someone from the Ballyvaughan area may have made the link, as I belive that the O'Loughlin clan are still very much embedded in the Ballyvaughan and surrounding area to this day.

The problem with this is that Edward stated that Mrs Mary O'Loughlin was his next of kin in 1922, 4 years before this marriage ?...it was a very promising lead apart from that 'fly in the ointment'.
