  1. What a fine, gentle, dignified lady, May Kennelly, my neighbor when I was growing up. I have no doubt that she rests in peace. Condolences to her family.

  2. I would like to pass on my sympathies to mairead kenneally on the death of her mother. Rip. We were in the same class in the presentation in 1968 and I’ve lost touch since.

  3. To her children a good mother and to the late Tadgh Kennelly a good wife
    By the Killarney Road near Millstreet Town May spent most of her long life
    She was such a beautiful person down to earth and free of guile
    One who greeted everybody with a warm and lovely smile
    Such sad news out of Millstreet May Kennelly has passed away
    That Millstreet was better for her living in it does seem a fair thing for to say
    One who never made an enemy and to many was a good friend
    She will always be remembered though her life has come to an end
    She will be missed by many in the Town in view of Clara Hill
    Every community need people like her as the spreaders of goodwill
    To her family and friends her passing is a sad loss indeed
    Of far more people like May Kennelly the Human World is in need
    In the quietness of St Mary’s by Cashman’s Hill her last remains do lay
    That she lived as a decent human being of her is true to say.
