Local woman Dara Breen Conlon, who spent the last 18 months bravely fighting a battle against cancer, has died.
Dara, a mother of seven, had been travelling to Germany with husband Martin for alternative treatment not available in Ireland. A popular and well known local woman, Dara worked at Louth County Hospital for many years.
Last month, a huge crowd came out in support of Dara and helped raise almost €18,000 towards her treatment whilst taking part in Glyde Rangers GFC’s Walk/Run for Dara in Tallanstown.
Funeral arrangements will be made later.
