Death: Mr. Peter Kennelly. Invercargill.
It is with regret that I have to announce (writes our Invercargill correspondent) the death of Mr. Peter Kennelly, which took place on the 22nd ultimo at his residence Spey Street, Invercargill. The deceased was a native of Kilrush County Clare Ireland. He came to the Australian colonies when a boy, and some thirty years ago he arrived in New Zealand, and made up his mind to settle down in the City of the South, where, fortified and comforted by the rites of the Catholic Church of which he was a pious member he peacefully passed away at the rather early age of sixty years. His occupation was a fitter in the Railway Department, and he was much esteemed and highly respected by the railway employees, as was manifest on the day of his funeral, when they turned out in a body to pay the deceased their last tribute of respect. He leaves an only unmarried daughter to mourn her loss. The burial service was conducted at the house and grave by the Rev. Father O'Dea. - R.I.P
