Joe Aherne, son of Timothy and Mrs. Aherne, Carhue, Bandon, at the early age of 19 years, after a brief
illness. Deceased was a bright and popular youth whose splendid qualities were an earnest of future
individual achievement if death had not cut short his young and ardent life. His demise was deplored
by a very large circle of friends and acquaintances, for he was extremely well connected. Three of his
brothers have dedicated their lives to God, being members of the Christian Brothers. And brother, Tim is
a very popular member of the Gardai Siochana in Co. Tipperary.
