Neale Road, Ballinrobe
Self-effacing by nature, Aidan made a notable contribution to the life of the community. He was treasurer of the Lakeside Sport and Fitness Club for a period and had associations with the local Golf Club and Ballinrobe Musical Society, acting as an usher at the annual production. He organised the annual Croí church gate collection, and his love of singing found a ready outlet in the parish choir and the Mayo Male Voice choir. It was fitting that both rendered hymns at his Funeral Mass.
His remains were removed from St Joseph’s Funeral Home to St Mary’s Church, Ballinrobe and the burial took place in the new cemetery after concelebrated Requiem Mass on Saturday, March 9. Fr Conal Eustance PP, the chief celebrant was assisted by Fr Martin Costello and Fr Vincent Kelly, a relative of the deceased. The large and representative attendances on both days reflected the high esteem in which Aidan was held and members of the Mayo Male Voice choir and the Golf Club formed a guard of honour. Aidan is mourned by wife Evelyn, son Edward, daughters Emma and Anna, sons-in-law David and Eamón, daughter-in-law Michelle, grandchildren Mark, Brian, Andrew, Jane and Tadhg, sister-in-law, brothers-in-law, nephews and nieces.
