  1. Mrs Tangney taught me for two years & she was a fantastic teacher. It was a pleasure to be taught by her. She will be missed. May she rest in peace.

  2. Gillian – we all wholeheartedly agree with you in your sincere comment regarding what a truly superb Teacher Teresa Tangney was and we, as Staff in the Presentation N.S., were so privileged to have been teaching with such a true lady who was Friend to all and so wonderfully creative. The esteem in which Teresa is held was so clearly illustrated in the very impressive Guard of Honour at the Funeral tonight which included many retired Teachers and the present teaching Staff as well as great Friends who had contact with the School. Great has been Teresa’s magnificent influence on so many in Millstreet and she would have been so thrilled to have seen the flying of two Kerry Flags at the entrance of the School tonight with the many Kerry people present for Teresa’s Funeral so delighted to note this gesture. Ar dheis Dé go raibh a hanam dílis.

  3. From Kerry to Millstreet Town on her journey in life
    Where to the draper and Gaelic footballer John Joe Tangney she became the wife
    And raised her sons and daughters the parents of today
    The past and present linked to the future in life it is this way
    In her community work and teaching she became loved and widely known
    The seeds that grow to the fruits of friendship everyday by her were sown
    One who done a lot of good things in her lifetime span
    Teresa was a nice person and lived as a good woman
    Many years have passed since Teresa came to live in Millstreet though it seem only like yesterday
    Time does not wait on anyone it does tick and tick away
    In life for everyone of us there is a last farewell
    To us a reminder of our mortality on the tolling of the funeral bell
    Her last remains are in Drishane near where she lived and was growing old
    But her spirit is in Kerry with the famous green and gold.
