It’s that time of year again and Moyvane Development Association would appreciate your help. Up to now they have been able to increase their points every year so with your help it is possible to climb another rung of the ladder. Keep an eye out for clean up evenings. It will do three things for you, it will get you some fresh air and help keep you fit and of course it will give you a great sence of personal satisfaction.

That was Mary Stack, Glenalappa, 99 years and 218 days, who, unfortunately, ran out of time on Tuesday, May 16th, 2017. Mary was an exceptional lady, lived alone in one of the old cottages with a loft and until recently she slept upstairs in the loft. She climbed the ladder (no stairs) and then pulled up the ladder after her when she went to bed. She made sure no unwanted visitors had access to her space. She did all her own wallpapering and painting right up to the end. She cut her own hedge standing on a ladder! She baked for Ireland, brown bread, scones, cakes, you name it she did it. At her funeral one of her family, the younger generation, told me she has never cooked a Christmas dinner, Aunty Mary always did it. She would travel to Tralee on the bus, get off at the train station and walk to the hospital to visit someone who was a patient in the hospital. Mary always cared for people and about people. Her early life was spent taking care of many, many people. Most people knew her from the many years she worked in Walshe’s shop with Margaret & Dan. The most extraordinary thing is Mary lived on bread and tea, no meat, no potatoes, just bread and tea! She was small, light, hardy and walked with a spring in her step and a smile on her face. Sorry Mary for writing this, I know you wouldn’t want it but you didn’t tell me not to do it and I wanted to share with those who didn’t know the exceptional person you were. Mary was predeceased by her brothers Pat, John, Jim, Mike and Rich, sisters Bridie and Nora. She will be missed by her sisters Hannah and Teresa and brother Tim and many relatives too numerous to mention. May she rest in peace.
