Moyvane Notes August 23, 2022

TIME TO REMEMBER One year ago last Sunday, August 21, Eileen Cronin left this world to join Mike Joe who passed away just over a year earlier. Eileen was one of a kind and kind was a word that was synonymous with Eileen. She loved Moyvane, she loved Kerry football and was involved in everything that was good in this parish. In the sixties she was part of the Drama Group that competed at Drama Festivals all over Ireland and won many All Irelands, The Open in Athlone, The Macra, the Oireachtas and finally the group made it to the Peacock and the Abbey Theatres in Dublin. Not many groups had that distinction. There were many Best Actress awards. She was part of Moyvane Bingo for, probably, 40 years and by God was she good at what she did and was she loved by everyone that came to Bingo? They thought there was no one like Eileen and they were right. She called back the numbers at Bingo on the night, paid the buses, paid the prize money and then, in her own time, sorted all the money. It now takes two people to do what she did! She is not forgotten and is remembered and talked about every Thursday night. Personally, I miss her every day of every week. She was my go to person. She would be so proud of Kerry winning another All Ireland this year. Darragh O’Shea was her favourite player and one of her prized possessions was a picture of Darragh signing his book for her in Brosnan’s Bar. Her First Anniversary Mass was celebrated last Sunday morning at 11.00am.
