Our Breton Friends Fondly Remember Anne Keane

We have just received a greatly appreciated message of sincere sympathy from our Breton Friends in Pommerit le Vicomte having become aware of the passing of Anne Keane to her Eternal Reward, R.I.P..  Anne was of course synonymous with our Twinning Association and superbly coordinated many splendid welcomes in Millstreet and in Brittany as a wonderfully dedicated Committee Member of the Millstreet Twinning Association.  Here is a translation of the message sent from Brittany by  Joseph and Yves which is so very thoughtful and supportive. (S.R.)

“Hello to all dear friends of MILLSTREET we have been greatly saddened to learn of the announcement of the death of  ANNE KEANE – supreme personality of your Twinning Committee.  Anne was always so very helpful and supportive during our exchanges. Courageous and dignified in the face of her illness. (Every day that passes is bonus, she told me during our last visits 2016- 2017-2018 so let’s take advantage of it). On behalf of the entire Twinning Committee of Pommerit le Vicomte on behalf of Mayor MICHEL LANCIEN  Mr. Floch Jean,  Mr. Gautier Alain (former mayor) and the whole municipality we present by your intermediary our very sincere condolences to the entire family of ANNE KEANE as well as to all the members of your committee. JOSEPH and YVES.”

Below we share some Twinning images from the past as we all recall our great Friend Anne.  Ar dheis Dé go raibh a hanam dílis.

  1. Dear twinning committee,
    Our sister Anne enjoyed the twinning events on both sides of the water and made many friends over the years due to her involvement . We would like to thank you for your expressions of sympathy and for the attendance of so many of you at her removal.and funeral this week.
    I once went to translate for a set dancing workshop she did in Pommerit, we were accompanied by Doireann, also sadly gone now, and we received a great welcome and hospitality.
    Please send on the message of sympathy from Pommerit as I would like to reply to it on behalf of my family, thank you , Ruben Keane
