Nell Foster-Smith (née McTernan)

Late of Ennis and the Brampton Care Home, Oranmore, passed away peacefully on March 10th, 2022 aged 92.

Deeply regretted by her sons Erwin (Adelaide, Australia) and Karl (Minneapolis, USA), their spouses Sue (Erwin) and Bronagh (Karl), her grandchildren Matthew, Tiernan, Shane and Alana, and by her many nieces and nephews in Ireland and abroad.


Nell was born in Clarecastle and lived all her life in Ennis until her latter years where she resided at the Brampton Care Home where she received wonderful, loving care.
She lived a full life working with Aer Lingus ground staff in Shannon Airport and as a volunteer with the Irish Red Cross. Later she worked for many years at the Clare Social Services. In her retirement she answered the calls at the Samaritans. She loved nothing more than entertaining her children, her sisters and their spouses and her many nieces and nephews. A wonderful mother and a cherished aunt and friend, she will be greatly missed.
