Greaneys and Careys in Brendan of Ireland

This is Frank Greaney’s grandmother, Mary Greaney, nee Carey. She loved to play Patience and played it every day. Frank remembers her just like this in this very navy blouse with the white polka dots. She took snuff and she was partial to a Baby Power. She was in bed by 10.00 every night.

This is Frank’s mother, Bridie.

 This the Greaney family around the table.

Here they are all saying the family rosary. Pidge is on the far right in the photo. The little girl kneeling by the small chair is Frank’s sister, Máire. His younger sister was not born when the picture was taken.

Parnell in Listowel

I have been told recently that Parnell did not speak from the hotel window at all but from a platform in The Square. Could it be that he addressed the crowd twice?


Update on Molly

Some of her fans have been asking me how Molly is doing. She is doing fine and dandy. She is just back from her holiday in Rosslare and is settling down to her last weeks before  back- to -school life in Ballincollig.
