The close knit community of Maudlintown was shocked and saddened at Christmas by the sudden death of Theresa Clancy.

Theresa from Dolphin Road died on Christmas Eve evening at Wexford General Hospital, just five weeks after the death of her brother Patrick (Jim).

The son of the late Aidan and Bridget Theresa was due to celebrate her 65th birthday later this year, a celebration that would have brought her great joy.

A very social woman Theresa loved nothing more than a cigarette and a drink when out with friends in the Sailing Cot.

Two years ago she underwent major heart surgery but had made a great recovery and her sudden illness at Christmas was a big shock to her family.

In her youth she worked in Celtic Linen. From a large family Theresa was very close to all her siblings and in particular Richard and Jim and all three lived together in the family home on Dolphin Road.

She was a good cook and generally took responsibility for the cooking at the Clancy home. Theresa, Jim and Richard often visited their parent's grave at Crosstown following their deaths in the late 70s and early 80s.

She was also a television lover with daytime television being a particular favourite.

She is pre decreased by her parents, Aidan and Bridget and her brother the late Patrick (Jim). She is survived by her brothers Philip, Christy, Richard, Michael, Martin, sisters Mary and Breda, nephews, nieces, relatives and friends.

Her remains were removed from Mulligan's Funeral Home, The Faythe to the Church of the Assumption Bride Street. She was buried with her brother Jim afterwards in St Ibar's Cemetery, Crosstown.
