Funeral Of Dr Danaher
The funeral of this much regretted young man took place on Sunday last from his brothers residence in Monemohill. Dr Danaher, who, since taking his degrees had been in practice in London, some time ago contracted rheumatic fever, from the effects of which he never rallied despite what medical care and skill can do. The immense cortege that accompanied the remains to the family burial ground at Ardagh testified to the love and respect in which Dr Danaher was held by his neighbours.
