There was an air of gloom in Ferbane this week following the tragic death of Emma Dooley.

The 30 year old was killed following a car crash at Derrinlough on the main Birr to Cloghan road last Thursday.

A native of Portroe in County Tipperary, Emma was married to Greg Dooley, son of well known Offaly County Councillor Eamonn.

The couple who were married in December 2010 lived in Ballyvora Grove in Ferbane.

Emma worked in the Allied Irish Bank in Birr, where she was very well regarded among her colleagues.

Recently she had visited St Brendan’s Community School, Birr to show to students how to open accounts and impressed the students greatly.

She was described as “a very quiet, easy going, placid girl who was very well liked by everyone who knew her.”

She is also survived by her parents Anthoney and Breda Shouldice, her two brothers Colman and Cormac, and five sisters Genevieve, Ruth, Linda, Denise and Antonia.

Her remains will repose at her home in Ballyvora Grove today (Tuesday) from 3pm until 10pm.

Requiem Mass will take place on Wednesday at 12 noon in St Mary’s Church, Ferbane.

Burial will take place afterwards in Castletown Cemetery, Portroe arriving 4pm approx.

The house will be private on Wednesday morning.
