THE late Delia Adams, who passed away on Tuesday, was a hugely popular personality in Killarney where she was very actively involved in community life and hugely supportive of charities and fundraising events.

From Bridge House, Coolgarrive, late of College Street and formerly Malahide, Dublin, she was a great supporter of the Arts and loved attending and supporting exhibitions, musicals, concerts and other entertainment events.

A very stylish woman, fashion was her forte and she had a very cheerful and gregarious manner that gave her an uncanny knack of almost lighting up a room whenever she entered it.

A keep fit enthusiast throughout her life, Delia (née Nolan) was predeceased by her husband Jim, a well-known and respected Teagasc advisor in Killarney, as well as by two sons, Pat and Declan, and a grandson, Barry.

She is survived by her children of Jimmy, Gerard, Adrienne, Karen and Ruth and her grandchildren Claire, James, Maura, Scott, Nathan, Jordan, Alison, Fionnuala, Seán, Ciara, Marcus and Elliott.

Delia is further survived by her sons-in-law Stiofán Murphy and Martin Maloney, daughters-in-law Patricia, Laura and Marie, her sister Eileen, brothers-in-law, sisters-in-law, nieces and nephews and many other relatives and friends

Reposing at O’Shea’s Funeral Home, Killarney on Thursday from 4.30pm to 6.30pm, removal will take place afterwards to St Mary’s Cathedral. Requiem Mass will be on Friday morning at 10.30am with burial afterwards in Aghadoe Cemetery, Killarney.
