  1. We are deeply saddened by the news of Phillis passing.
    Our thoughts and prayers are with you all.

    Robert & Elaine Brazier (nee O’Shea) & Family.

  2. In the Seasons of time one has to go back far
    Since Phillis drank and danced with her late Husband Billy O Shea in the Bush Bar
    Since then many a sunset and many a sundown
    And so many changes in old Millstreet Town

    She was Phillis Foley before she became Billy O Shea’s wife
    And in Millstreet where she raised her children she lived for the most of her life
    A woman who in Duhallow by many was well liked and well known
    As a beautiful person with a charm of her own

    The Reaper of lives of her grief did not spare
    The Shea Family given some crosses to bear
    In life as we know there is laughter and tears
    And Phillis she too had her happier years

    Predeceased by her husband Billy in time going back a while
    Phillis was a beautiful person with a beautiful smile
    As human life goes in time she had lived quite a span
    I remember her as a middle aged woman when i was a young man

    Sad to hear that from life Phillis has passed away
    And Millstreet the poorer without her today
    A huge loss to her family and to her friends and though the gift of life from her has gone
    In all who knew her good memories of the beautiful person she was will live on.

  3. So sorry for your loss. In the last week I have been researching the O’Shea Family, particularly Elizabeth Ann, daughter of Tinothy and Mary O’Shea 3 Minor Row and later 12 Manor Row. Elizabeth married my Grand uncle Larry and a close friend of Anthony Barrett who I gather lived nearby.

    Sorry for your loss, perhaps in time one of the family might contact me.
