Ballyvaughan Obituary lookup needed.
« 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.

Was she a Spinster?

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
