THE death has taken place of Geraldine McHugh (nee Baynes), Newtown, Castlebar.

In her 94th year, her passing at Mayo University Hospital has evoked a huge sense of loss in the community at large.

A member of one of Castlebar’s oldest and most respected families, she grew up in Mountgordon and later moved to Main Street.

A woman of immense sincerity and courtesy. she was wife of the late Tom McHugh, who ran a successful building contracting firm for many years and was a founder of the Welcome Inn Hotel in the town.

She was also predeceased by her son Tony, formerly of Mountain View Securities Limited and the Welcome Inn Hotel, and her three brothers Val, Martin and Tony Baynes.

The late Mrs. McHugh dedicated much of her life to her family and was particularly proud of all her grandchildren. She had a great relationship with her neighbours and had a deep love of Castlebar and its people.

Deepest sympathy is extended to her daughter Ann, daughter-in-law Mary, grandchildren Thomas, Anne-Ita, Alison and Geraldine, sister-in-law Sheila, nephews, nieces, extended families, neighbours and friends. 

Her remains will be reposing at the residence of her daughter Ann, Newtown, on Saturday evening from 4 o’clock until 8 o’clock with removal on Sunday at 1 o’clock to the Church of the Holy Rosary, Castlebar, for Requiem Mass at 2 o’clock.
