Gaffney, Ned

Widespread sadness followed the passing of Edward 'Ned' Gaffney, Kiltrasna, Corlismore. Affectionately known as Ned all his life, he was a hard-working and popular member of the local community, where he lived for most of his 90-plus years (he was originally from Corduff, Ballinagh and spent seven years in Canada). He played football for both Wateraughey and Cornafean. Fellow players formed a guard of honour at Ned's removal as a mark of respect and the coffin was draped in the flags of Lacken and Cornafean.
