Molly was 80

Sincere birthday greetings went out recently to Molly Ryan, Martin, England, and formerly Glassdrum, Cappawhite. And we believe it’s not over yet as you’ll have another big night in Mary Connies. May you live to enjoy many more.

James and Kathleen in a blaze

During the recent very warm spell a wooden window box at James and Kathleen Kiely’s house in Parkroe went on fire. It’s well the lads were at home to quench the fire or else!!

Full Bus

Cecilia had a full bus of Senior Citizens going to Tramore recently and all returned tanned and refreshed from the visit. We’ll come again Cecilia.

My Memory Road

Is a collection of poems from Timjoe McGrath which have being compiled and will be launched in St. John’s Church Ardmayle on Friday night 22nd June at 8.30pm. Many of the poems refer to Timjoe’s time in Cappawhite featuring a tribute to the County Final team of ’87. Timjoe extends an invitation to his many friends in Cappa to join him at the launch on the 22nd June in Ardmayle.


To Tim Joe McGrath on the lovely book of poetry “My Memory Road” written recently and as we write the book is a sell out. Lovely to go back to the 40’s and 50’s onwards and see how the people lived then. Tim Joe, you brought back many happy memories through your verses. Health and happiness to you and Teresa and family always.

Sincere Sympathy

To the Ursuline of Jesus sisters, Stella Maris Convent, Swansea on the death of their beloved Sr. Sarah (Sadie) Ryan (C), late of Ballybrack House, Annacarty. Sister Sarah entered the convent in 1948 and will be missed by her community, who in later years when Sarah was ill gave her so much of their time. Someone stayed with her all the time and can’t be thanked sincerely enough. Sympathy to her sisters, Ena, Breda and Maria and we must also remember her late brother Thomas at this time. Burial too place in Moriston Cemetery, Swansea. On her dear soul “Sweet Jesus have mercy.”


Joe and Josephine O’Carroll celebrated their 56th wedding anniversary last week in the Woodlands Nursing Home, Dundrum. Joe is resident there for a while now so the good staff made a beautiful cake to mark the occasion and they were surrounded with flowers by the management. Fr. Egan offered the monthly mass and blessed the happy couple, all in all they enjoyed being together for 56 years, it’s a feat in itself nowadays. Cheers and God bless for many more.
