A young mother of four children who died suddenly at her home in Athlone last Saturday was laid to rest in Drum cemetery today.
The sudden death of Christina Sherlock (née Quinn), St. Paul’s Tce., Roscommon/Athlone, has plunged her family, friends and the local community into a state of deep shock and grief. Christina was the mother of four young children, John, Jayden, Fíadh and Jaxon and wife of Patrick Sherlock.

Anne Connaughton, retired principal of St Paul’s NS, expressing her condolences online, said she had so many fond memories of Christina and one of her son’s during his time in the school. “She adored all her children and she always put their needs first. We have been honoured and blessed to have known Christina,” said Ann.
Christina is deeply missed by her husband Patrick and children; parents Willie and Caroline; sisters Trisha, Maggie, Donna, Vicky, Edel, Charlene and Nicole, brothers Peter, Benny, Tom, Eamon and Niall; her parents-in-law Pat and Patsy Sherlock; sisters-in-law; brothers-in-law; nieces, nephews, relatives and many friends.
