LIMERICK MOURNS THE PASSING OF MR. E.H.P. HOSFORD

Limerick City was enveloped in a sombre atmosphere as news broke of the passing of Mr E.H.P. Hosford, a well-respected figure in the community. The esteemed gentleman, aged 78, breathed his last on Monday morning while en route from his residence in Ashton, Corbally, to his beloved Limerick City.

Mr Hosford held a prominent position in Limerick and the neighbouring counties, having served as an extensive land agent for many years. Additionally, he held the crucial role of Secretary to the Limerick Fishery Board, contributing significantly to the development of Irish salmon and trout fisheries. His dedication to public service extended to his role as a magistrate in the County Limerick, where he actively participated in various initiatives.

One of Mr Hosford’s notable roles was as the Treasurer of the Protestant Aid Society, where he tirelessly worked for the betterment of the community. Described by those who knew him as having a kindly and amiable disposition, Mr Hosford was not only respected professionally, but was also beloved for his warmth and generosity.

The late magistrate had been grappling with health issues for some time, particularly heart-related afflictions. His demise, therefore, was attributed to these long-standing health challenges. The news of his passing cast a pall of sorrow over Limerick City, with a sense of loss reverberating among a wide circle of friends and acquaintances.

The County Limerick Petty Sessions, held yesterday, took a poignant turn as the magistrates adjourned the court to express their collective grief and sympathy for the widow and relatives of their departed colleague. The heartfelt condolences extended by the magistrates reflected the high regard in which Mr Hosford was held within the local legal community.

As the community mourns the loss of a dedicated public servant and a compassionate individual, Mr E.H.P. Hosford’s legacy is sure to endure through the positive impact he had on Limerick’s development and the countless lives he touched.
