Mrs. M. Slater, Carlow.
With exceeding regret we chronicle the death of Mrs. Maria Slater,
which very sad event indeed took place at her residence, Hanover,
Carlow, on Monday last after a very short illness.
As wife of Mr Francis Slater she was well-known in the commercial life
of County Carlow and neighbouring counties, and took a prominent part
in the poultry business of her husband, one of the most extensive of
its kind in Ireland.
The late Mrs Slater was an ideal wife and mother, and her loss is
irreparable in more ways than one.
She could be regarded as a model for Irish wives and mothers, and we
offer our heartfelt sympathy to the bereaved husband, parents,
brothers, sisters, and the young family.
The internment took place in St. Mary's Cemetery on Wednesday, and the
funeral was one of the
largest seen for some time.
The chief mourners were - Francis Slater (husband), John Ralph
(father), Tim and John Ralph (brothers): Tim and P. O'Neill (uncles),
Edward Slater (step-son), Alderman John Slater (Kilkenny) and
Valentine Slater, (brothers-in-law) Mrs Mary Snoddy, Mrs Bridget Walsh
(sisters-in-law) Edward Slater, Bernard Byrne, (Bagenalstown), William
Several floral tributes were placed on the grave.
