Condolences to the Murphy and Gallagher families on Mary’s passing. May she Rest In Peace. What a lovely lady with a great soul. Loved going into the shop with my mother, Annie Cunningham.

I was so sad to hear of Mary's death and send my condolences to her children and her extended family, especially to her sister, Margaret. Mary was a unique character. It was always a pleasure to visit herself and Michael in the shop. A welcome was assured and every visitor was regaled with stories from the past. Her memory was phenomenal; she was warm-hearted and cared about everyone. We will miss her greatly. May she rest in peace.

Vincent Sherlock
Sorry to learn of Mary's death. May she rest in the shade of the faith that sustained her.

One of my favourite radio moments, involved Mary in a radio interview with Ray D'Arcy. It was around the time the Syrians arrival in Ballaghaderreen was announced. She had featured on RTÉ News and this led to the interview. I listened back and wrote down what she said.

“We were reared in the Christian Tradition, the Christian Tradition is getting a kicking but there are many, many people in Ireland who still uphold those old values; that when somebody was hungry you tried to feed them,
somebody had no shelter, the Vincent de Paul – it all stemmed from that. We can’t forget all that” ….

Ray interjected: “That’s humanity, really …. the Christian tradition doesn’t have a monopoly on that ..”

Mary came back “It perfects it, it brought it to a finer place but we won’t go down that road”

Wisdom and sincerity had their moment ..... well done Mary.

Sympathies to her family and many friends.
