The Carlow Sentinel, October 8th
Death of Mr. James Smith.
We regret to announce the death of
Mr. James Smith, which occurred at his residence, Little
Moyle, in this county, after an illness of some month's
duration, at the ripe old age of 84.
The deceased gentleman was closely
identified with the agricultural interests of the county.
During the existence of the Carlow
Agricultural Society he was one of the most successful
exhibitors at its annual shows, and rendered good service by
introducing the best breeds of stock into the district.
His remains were interred in
Kellistown churchyard on Monday, the funeral being attended
by a very large number of friends.
The coffin was borne from the house
to the hearse by employees at Little Moyle, and into and
from the Church by Freemasons, deceased being an old and
respected member of the order.
His son, Mr Kane Smith, and his
son-in-law, Mr Kennedy, were chief mourners.
The Rev. T.H.Hatchell, rector of the
parish, officiated at the Burial Service.
THE FOLLOWING WEEK THIS APPEARED ON

We have been requested to state that
Mr. Breslin, son-in-law of the late Mr. Smith, who was to
