DEATHS: Once again we lost a resident of the village and Eily Mai was no ordinary resident, she was an institution, a character and very much her own woman. She lived all her life at “the corner”. Her mother died when she was young and with her father, Mick Sullivan, she brought up her two brothers, Tommie O and Jim Joe. The bond between the three was close and closer until both brothers predeceased her. Life was not easy for Eily Mai, she raised a family of nine, two girls and seven boys but unfortunately two of her sons, Tom & Seamus predeceased her as did her husband Mike Joe. Sincere sympathy to Kay, Mary (US), Tim, Micheal, Martin, John & Pat (Australia) and of course, her nephew, Mike O’Sullivan who, can be said, was another son in Eily Mai’s life. On the day of her funeral he did her proud, he spoke lovingly about her and told some stories that illustrated the woman she was, just a few because it would be impossible to tell even half of them. They are stories that will be told for generations to come because she was one of the great local characters. We have lost most of these characters and unfortunately they will never be replaced because everything has become politically correct. For good or bad that is the way life is. The death also took place recently of Dolly Hennessy, Ballyduff. Better known to many locally as Dolly Conroy she spent much of her younger life in Moyvane. Dolly is survived by her daughter, Margaret, New Jersey, sons, John & Michael, Ballyduff, sister Bridie Shine, Moyvane, three brothers in Dublin and extended family. May they both rest in peace. .
