The death has taken place in Chicago of a former Chieftain of the O’Malley clan.
Bridget A. O’Malley was a native of Doughmakeon, Louisburgh.
She had resided in the US most of her adult life, but was a regular visitor to Louisburgh over many years.
A former member of the Ursuline Sisters of Toledo, Ohio, Bridget is described as “an exuberant spirit, lifelong learner, fearless advocate, tireless teacher, and constant friend to all who met her”.
She is survived by her brothers Austie in Doughmakeon and Frank (US) and her sister Mary Rita, US.
She will be laid to rest on Friday after 10am Mass in St Paul of the Cross Church, Chicago.
