Death of George O’Donoghue
It is with deep regret we record the death of George O Donoghue, Shanacoole Kinsalebeg which took place at his home on the early hours of Saturday morning October 30th. Reposing at his home in Shanacoole, rosary for George was celebrated on Saturday evening, on Sunday his removal took place to The parish Church Youghal. Following requiem mass on Monday - George was laid to rest in north Abbey Cemetery. To his loving wife Bridie his family Jo, Carole, Jacqueline, David and Kevin his sisters Pauline and Rita brother in law Gerald and a wide circle of relatives neighbours and friends we extend our deepest sympathy
Just one week ago local author - Mike Hackett - George's good neighbour and friend launched his latest book "Sars". In it he features a beautiful photograph of George and his mother Molly plus a wonderful article compiled by George himself - in which he gives the following brief account of his life and times growing up in Youghal, as follows:
"Before going to England, my first job here was for McCarthy's paper shop near the corner of Chapel Lane, delivering papers on foot. Mr McCarthy had a shop at 7 South Main Street for his children: Cal, Peggy and Kitty. That was 1948 and my pay was nine shillings a week. My second job was a step up on the first one when I went to work for Loreto Rohan for a pound a week and had a bike supplied Every morning from 7am, I delivered over eighty "Cork Examiners" around the town six to Mossie Geary at the Ferry-Boat house to be, brought across to Monatrea a few to the town hall for C.Y.M.S; another few for the British Legion Club at the corner of Nile [O Rahilly] Street and the rest were singles delivered to regular houses Than at 11am I met the eleven O Clock bus that brought the Dublin Papers and the afternoons saw me deliver special bread and cakes brought to town by Thompsons Bakery van from Cork. But my day wasn't over yet! The Cork Evening Echo was left in the shop for sale, while I sold the rest around town. During those years, you had hundreds of soldiers at the Barracks on Cork Hill- and this was a great stop Three pence or even sixpence could be got for just one Echo that in 1948 was a penny. The remaining papers would then be sold around Sarsfield Terrace.
One day while cycling up near the Munster and Lenister Bank I was trying to find a low place on the path to permit me to cycle up and go behind the bank. But then I heard all the shouting - a van had backfired around the old L&N - and a horse had bolted with his cart. It hit me from behind and I was sent flying. First I was brought to Cole's Chemist and then to the local district Hospital - before being brought to the North Infirmary Cork - where I spent many months. When eventually I was discharged from hospital I could not cycle for a year- and the job at Loreto Rohan's was well and truly gone. Then 1951 saw me follow my sisters to England for work.
I returned in 1953 for a short while and worked in Blackwater Cottons. One of my comrades there was Jim Mernan from Villerstown - one of twins- and we were good pals. The after four years I headed back to England again and stayed until 1980 I saw and advertisement on a paper looking for somebody to work in Waterford, doing exactly what I was at - a moulding technician. I attended the interview, got the job with Hasbro and came back to live in Waterford. And guess what? On my first day at work - there before me on the floor was the same Jim Mernan from Villerstown I was definitely home! Happy Memories - George O Donoghue"
