      Last week as recorded in this journal, passed away, to the deep and heartfelt
      regret of a host of relatives and friends, an esteemed and well known
      resident of Kilbannon, Mr. Thos. Grehan, at the patriarchal age of 98 years, during
      which he had hardly ever suffered illness till feebleness from weight of years
      set in. The deceased was a fine specimen of an Irishman looked at from any
      point of view. He was upright, honest, and of independent mind, and an
      unflinching nationalist. He was a firm adherent of Parnell to the last, and while the
      anniversary of his death was annually celebrated he seldom missed visiting
      his grave; although he was then bordering on ninety. Needless to say that the
      deceased was popular and highly respected in the district.

      Burial took place at Kilbannon on Thursday, 1st April. Rev. Father Waters,
      C.C., reciting the last prayers at the graveside.
