  1. Sincere sympathy to Valerie, Stephen, Ronald, David, Niall Kenneth and the extended O’Boyle family. So saddened to hear this shocking news of Barbara’s passing. My thoughts and prayers are with you all at this difficult time. Lots of memories growing up with Barbara, some laughs and craic, an honest and good friend and neighbour. May her gentle soul rest in peace

  2. I’m so sad to hear about Barbara. I am praying that she didn’t suffer 🙏🏻
    The last time I saw her was when she came to visit mum (Tess) and us in the cottages we were staying at in Killala. We all had a big bowl of mussels and had good craic! 💚
    Ye are all in my thoughts and prayers. xx
    RIP Barbara
