Oughterard Newsletter November 2005

Sheila O’Sullivan, who died recently, gave long and outstanding service to the people of Oughterard.

With her husband Dinny, she ran the Post Office for nearly 50 years. I had the privilege to do the Relief Post in the 1970s and I found her to be a kind, understanding and gentle lady.

She was also an outstanding quiz competitor and was on the Oughterard team that won two Muintir na Tire All-Ireland’s in the late 1960s.

She was on my own team that took part in the Table Quizzes locally for several years and was blessed with a wonderful memory.

Sheila served as Lady Mayor of Oughterard for several years. She will be fondly remembered .

May she rest in peace.
