Tribute paid to late Clodagh Gleeson BL
TRIBUTES were paid at Tuesday’s sitting of Tuam District Court to the late Clodagh Gleeson BL.
Judge Geoffrey Browne led the tributes, offering his sympathies to her father Eric Gleeson Snr and her brother Eric Gleeson Jnr, both members of the Tuam Bar.
He said he knew and admired Clodagh who along with being an extremely pleasant and amiable person was also very attentive in her professional dealings with her clients and very good with them.
He said she was taken way before her time and when such a lovely and vibrant girl was taken the loss had an added impact.
Judge Browne added that he knew Clodagh for some years and her passing should be a reminder to all of how valuable life is and how so often it is not appreciated.
Infectious enthusiasm epitomised life
Tony Doherty, solr, on behalf of the Tuam Bar Association offered his sympathies to the Gleeson family. He said that in a landscape that sometimes appeared dull and dreary, Clodagh with her infectious enthusiasm epitomised the brightness to be found in life.
Court Clerk Geraldine Courtney offered sympathies on behalf of the Court Services and Insp Michael O’Dwyer did so on behalf of the Garda Síochína.
