      Death of Mr P Brennan
      We regret the death of Mr Patrick Brennan, which occurred at his residence, New Park, on Saturday evening last. Deceased had until recently enjoyed the best of health, but during the past few months his health began to fail, so that his passing away at the age of 75 years was not altogether unexpected. During the past few weeks, he had been devotedly attended in his illness by his wife and daughters. The late Mr Brennan was a native of Kilkenny, Ireland, and was born in 1846. He came to Australia in 1867, and was attracted to the tin fields in the northern part of New South Wales. Having reaped a measure of success, he took up land on Enmore Station, and settle down to pastoral pursuits, which he followed with success until the time of his demise. He married Miss Mary Tobin, daughter of the late John and Mary Tobin, of Enmore. The marriage was celebrated at Armidale by the then Rev Rather O’Connor (now Dr O’Connor, Bishop of Armidale). The late Mr Brennan is survived by his sorrowing widow and children - Mrs J Heydon (Armidale), Mrs P Duffy (Armidale), Misses Maggie and Annie Brennan (Enmore), and Messrs Thos Brennan (Gostwyk Road), William and John Brennan (Enmore). Also, two brothers, William (Enmore) and Martin (Ireland), as well as a married sister (Mrs Larkin, Ireland), survive. There are eight grandchildren also surviving. Deceased was highly respected for his many admirable qualities, being a warm-hearted, genial Irishman, endowed with a fervent patriotism for the cradleland of his birth. He was always a conspicuous member of the Irish National Association. A strong supporter of his church, he showed a christian charity to his fellow men, and has passed away sincerely regretted by a large circle of friends, who mourn his loss from the community. The funeral, which was largely attended, took place on Monday, at the Catholic Cemetery, where Rev Father Carroll, assisted by REv Dr Coleman and Rev Father McGrath, officiated at the graveside. Mr T Crowley was the funeral director. Armidale Chronicle 31st May 1922.
