Some local ladies taking a look around Craftshop na Méar.


Encomium for lady with a Listowel connection in 1899

(From The Kentucky Irish American, Louisville August 12, 1899)

No death of recent date has caused more profound sorrow in Ireland than

that of Mrs. Pierce Mahony, which occurred at her home in Sutton, County

Dublin, July 27.

 Mrs. Mahony belonged to a well-known Kerry family, the Raymonds, and was in every respect an ornament to Irish womanhood. She was a lady of exceeding culture, and her great personal charm was the admiration of all

who ever had the privilege of coming within her gracious influence. To the

Irish cause she was passionately devoted, and her bereaved husband by her decease loses a lifelong companion who was in complete sympathy with all his aims.
