first_imgThere has been widespread sadness at the death of well-known Letterkenny woman Annette Gallagher (nee Larkin).Annette, who was in her mid 70s, was well-known to customers at The Drum Bar which she helped to run with her husband Cormac.Annette and Cormac took over at the Drum Bar in 1968 but Annette was well-known as an astute businesswoman well before that. She left school at 15 to take over the running of the Larkin family bakery which was also located at Lower main Street.A gentle and kind-hearted woman, Annette however, was never afraid to stand up for what she believed in.One of 13 children to the late Frank and Cis Larkin, Annette was a founding member of the Lower Main Street Traders Association.She was also a found member of the MS Society of Donegal, a condition of which her late sister Yvonne suffered. Her smiling face and friendly manner will be missed behind the counter of the Drum Bar and at Lower Main Street.She is survived by her husband Cormac, son Cormac and daughters Ann-Marie and Mary, son-in-law and two grandchildren.She will be buried following funeral mass tomorrow (THURS) at 10am at St Eunan’s Cathedral.Donegal Daily would like to express its sympathies with the Gallagher and Larkin families.  WIDESPREAD SADNESS AT PASSING OF WELL-KNOWN LETTERKENNY BUSINESSWOMAN was last modified: January 23rd, 2013 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:Annette GallagherDrum BarLarkinletterkennylast_img read more
