Recent Funeral: we pray for the repose of the soul of CURSTY PEIGI MacLEAN who peacefully passed away in St. Brendan’s Home on Sunday 6th January at the age of 71. This past year has been a very difficult year for Cursty- with many highs and lows in her health. Cursty had lived in St. Brendan’s Home  for over 10 years- the longest serving resident. Cursty’s Requiem Mass took place in St. Brendan’s Church  in Craigston on Wednesday 9th January and thereafter Cursty was then laid to rest in Cuithir Cemetery.Eternal rest grant unto her O Lord and let perpetual light shine upon her. May she rest in peace. Amen.
