Late Ita O’Neill, Minor Row, Millstreet …Also of Meath & Dublin

We extend our sincere sympathy to Breeda, Tom and Áine O’Neill and all the Family on the recent sad departure of their dear mother, Ita, to her Eternal Reward.  R.I.P..  Ita was a true Lady of the very highest calibre.   We all have treasured memories of the Riordan Family (Michael was the local Jeweller) who lived in the house where Ita, Áine and Tom later lived in Minor Row…and privileged indeed has Millstreet been because of the O’Neill Family deciding to establish their home there.  Ar dheis Dé go raibh a hanam dílis.  (S.R.)
