There passed away at her residence in Michael Street New 
Ross, on Saturday the 21st inst., a most respectable 
resident of the town and a member and relative of most 
respectable and distinguished families, of Mrs Ellen Troy.  
She belonged to one of the oldest and most respectable 
families of Kilkenny City, being the fourth daughter of the 
late John Leahy, merchant and hotel proprietor, Walton 
Street, Kilkenny, and grand-niece of the illustrious 
Archbishop Doyle, the great J.K.L.  Her husband, Mr Patrick 
Troy, who died some years ago was grand nephew of Archbishop 
Thomas Troy, of Dublin, and he was first cousin to the late 
Archbishop Daniel Murray of Dublin, and relative of several 
other popular persons.  During the years she had been 
residing in the town she was held in the greatest respect by 
all who knew her, and she peacefully passed away fortified 
by the rites of the Catholic Church of which she was a 
practical member.  She leaves three daughters and one son 
the latter who resides in Melbourne to mourn her loss.  The 
funeral to St. Stephen's Cemetery on Monday, was both large 
and respectable.
