AUDREY McClenaghan (nee Copley) sadly passed away on August 15, 2020, at South-West Acute hospital after a short illness.

Audrey was the eldest daughter of three born to Walter Federick Copley and Florence Elizabeth Copley, on October 12, 1938.

She always classed herself as a genuine ‘townie’, having been born between the bridges in Paget Square.

She attended Enniskillen Model Primary School and, upon leaving, took up her first job with Taylor Woods in Enniskillen.

It was there that she met her future husband, David (Davy) McClenaghan, and they were married on March 19, 1958, in St Macartin’s Cathedral.

They had three children: David, Lorraine, and Caroline. Audrey devoted her time to her family and, along with Davy, worked tirelessly to provide for their children.

She worked in Kent Plastics canteen, Royal British Legion, Mulligan’s Bar, SR Elliot’s shop and Moira’s dress shop, to name but a few.

In 1991, she was devastated by the death of her husband, Davy, and again in 2018 by the sudden death of her son, David.

Audrey was a well-known face in Enniskillen and was able to lighten the room in any social setting. She had a wide circle of friends across all age ranges.

Audrey had an immaculate dress sense, and had a passion for stylish clothes, always in vibrant colours.

In her later years, she took great pleasure in holidays to Cyprus, Florida and France, and in Christmas cruises to the Caribbean, all with members of her family.

She enjoyed many trips to Scotland to visit her family there. A lifelong dog owner, Audrey got great pleasure from her latest Yorkie, Poppy, and the pair were often seen walking in the Broadmeadow.

After a service in SR Elliot Funeral Home in Drumclay, Audrey’s remains were taken to St McCartin’s Cathedral on August 17 and remained overnight.

On August 18, a service was held by Revd. Canon Ian Ellis. A eulogy was prepared and delivered by Audrey’s grandson, Dean Carson, and a lesson was read by her granddaughter, Rachel McClenaghan.

The funeral processed to Brendrum Cemetery via Head Street, where the cortege stopped briefly at the site of Mulligan’s bottom bar, or Audrey’s Bar as it was known, where she had worked for many years.

It then travelled along the Wellington Road, and again stopped outside Barbour Court, to allow the assembled residents and friends to pay their last respects. Audrey was interred in the family plot alongside her beloved husband, Davy.

Audrey is survived by her daughters, Lorraine (Bert) Carson and Caroline Magwood; her daughter-in-law, Georgina McClenaghan, widow of the late David; her grandchildren, Dean Carson, Cheryl McConachie, Ryan Magwood, and Rachel and Joshua McClenaghan; her great-grandchildren, Ben, Kathryn and Rosie Carson and Harry McConachie; and her sisters, Sylvia (Harry) Thompson, and Jean (Paul) Nelson, along with their families.
