Pat Purcell Papers

Patrick Snoddy

1911 - 1989

Patrick Snoddy

Nationalist and Leinster Times.

1st August 1942.

Mr. Patrick Snoddy.

It is with deep regret we announce the death of Mr Patrick Snoddy which occurred after a brief illness at his residence at Quinagh, Carlow. Deceased had been in good health up to a few days before his death and his rather sudden demise cast a gloom over the district where he was extremely popular.

He had been in the employment of the Great Southern Railways for almost half a century, and retired on pension some years ago.

He farmed for a number of years at Quinagh.

During the Black and Tan and Civil wars his home was always open to the volunteers on the run and the help and kindness they received will ever be remembered.

The funeral which took place to Ballincarrig, was of very large dimensions and was a striking testimony to the memory of the deceased.

Rev. Tom Fennell officiated at the graveside. The chief mourners were:-

Mrs Mary Snoddy (wife); Sam, John, Michael and Tom (sons); Elizabeth Leonard, Catherine Jones, Anne Phelan, Bride Goebbels, Margaret Purcell, Esther Purcell (daughters);  Pado Redmond, Patrick, Pascal and John Phelan, Patrick, Edward and John Jones, Brendan Snoddy, Pat Snoddy, James Snoddy, Oliver Snoddy, Michael Snoddy, Thomas Snoddy, Danial Snoddy, Samuel Snoddy, John Noel Purcell, John Purcell, Pat Purcell, (grandsons); John Slater, Kilkenny (brother-in-law); John Slater, Junior, Edward Slater, Paddy Slater, Edward, John and Joe Walsh, James McCartney, Donal McCartney, Liam McCartney, Joe Doyle, (nephews); Joe Leonard, Charlie Goebbles, Paddy Jones, Joe Phelan, Pat Purcell, Michael Purcell, (relatives).

A large number of Mass Cards were received.
