The death has taken place of one of Ireland's oldest women.
Margaret Coleman nee Corcoran, a native of Fairymount in Co Roscommon, passed away earlier this week in her 106th year.
As a young woman, she trained as a nurse in England and lived in the UK until her retirement at the age of 65.
She returned to live in Athlone, and her funeral will take place in Athlone tomorrow.
She's survived by her son and daughter, grandchildren and extended family.
