Walter Kivlehan, Lavagh

The peaceful death occurred recently of Walter Kivlehan, late of Cloondrihara, Lavagh at University Hospital Sligo. In his late 70’s, Walter was a true gentleman, known by many and respected by all. Walter was on the staff at Achonry Creamery for nearly 50 years in various facets, working his way up to Stores Manager, a post he held for many years up until his retirement. He was the face and voice for North Connacht Farmers Co-Op, later known as Connacht Gold for many years at Achonry.

His interest in GAA affairs brought him into contact with many of the greats of Gaelic Football, and Walter was an able Secretary of the Co. Sligo Minor Board for many years. He also served in various other officer roles at Club, County and Connacht Council level. Mullinabreena GAA Club was very close to his heart, and he was delighted in recent years at the rise in that clubs fortunes and progress.

Walter was a good part time Farmer and was involved in many other aspects of Community life in the Mullinabreena and Achonry areas. Whether in Achonry Stores, or on the streets of Tubbercurry, he always enjoyed banter about the football match just played by local clubs or counties.

His remains reposed at home and at the Morahan Funeral Home, where many friends from many facets of his life called to pay their respects. Removal took place to the Church of the Sacred Heart, Mullinabreena, and burial took place in Court Abbey Cemetery.

Walter is survived by his loving wife Annie Mai, sons Fr. Paul and Walter, sister Mary, sisters and brothers in law, nieces, nephews and a large circle of close friends, all to whom sympathy is extended. Ar dheis Dé go Raibh Sé,
