A pillar of the Newtownhamilton community
IT IS with great sadness that republicans in south Armagh and beyond learned of the death of lifelong republican Charlie Caherty.
Charlie had been involved in the Republican Movement for many many years and was instrumental in the establishment of the Caraher/Caherty Sinn Féin Cumann in Newtownhamilton. Charlie was deeply committed to his local cumann, holding the position of treasurer. His comrades in the Caraher/Caherty Cumann will remember Charlie with fondness and pride, as will republicans all over the country.
Local Councillor Jimmy McCreesh said:
“Charlie was a pillar of the local community in Newtownhamilton and whether it be Gaelic games or politics you could be sure that Charlie would be involved and making a difference for the good of everybody in the community.
“At this difficult time we wish to extend our sympathy to the Caherty family, to Charlie’s wife Nellie and children Pat, Brian, Gerald, Bernadette, Ann and Rita and to his entire family circle.
