Remembering Legendary Film Star, Maureen O’Hara & Her Connection with Millstreet Including Her Admiration for Turbrid Holy Well

0025-Maureen-OHara-20110092-Maureen-OHara-20111-150x150The interview we recorded in 2011 features on LTV2 Programme 211.  Hugely popular Film Star, the Legendary Maureen O’Hara holds a framed picture of Turbrid Holy Well with which she was presented by Seán Radley, Ita & William Fitzgerald following a fascinating brief interview with LTV2 at Glengarriff Golf Club on Sunday night, 26th June 2011.  We referred very especially to Maureen’s starring role in “The Quiet Man” with John Wayne in 1951. We believe that Maureen once visited a pharmacy in Millstreet as she was en route most likely to Killarney.

Here we recall our meeting with the wonderfully friendly Maureen in 2011.
