True Pictorial Gem from the Past – The Class of 1945

We extend sincere thanks to John Tarrant for very kindly permitting us to share this wonderfully historic photo of the Class of 1945 which John’s late Mum, Nora had not only preserved for decades but has so very carefully written all the names of those in this superb image on the back of the photograph.   This picture also appears in John’s splendid Millstreet Matters feature in this week’s “Corkman” (Thurs. 11th March 2021).   The amazing coincidence we note is that not only is Nora Tarrant (née Buckley)4th from left in 2nd row… featured in the picture but so also is Peggy Kelleher (née O’Connell).6th from left in back row – both of whom went to their Eternal Reward over the past week.  RIP.  There are many others thanks to Nora’s excellent captions whom I recognise in this precious photo of 1945 even though I was not born until 1951.   Renewed thanks to the Tarrant Family for sharing this true pictorial gem.  Tap on the image to enlarge.  (S.R.)

Acknowledgement and First Anniversary of Neilie O’Leary Toorbona and Holland

The family of the late Neilie O’Leary wish to thank most sincerely all those who sympathised with us on the death of Neilie. We are deeply grateful to all those who attended his removal and Mass from near and far – his friends who came over from Holland and those who sent Mass Cards and flowers. We thank Canon John Fitzgerald who celebrated Neilie’s Mass and Sharon and Julie for their kindness. A special thanks to Davy, Cora and Timmy of Tarrant’s undertakers for their compassion and professionalism and the Doctor’s and Nurses of Cork University Hospital who cared for Neilie during his short illness. As it would not be possible to thank everybody individually, please accept this acknowledgement as an expression of our gratitude and appreciation to all. Mass has been offered for your intentions. Neilie’s 1st anniversary Mass is on Saturday March 13th at 6.30 in St Patrick’s Church Millstreet and will be live streamed on Ar dheis Dé go raibh a anam dilis.
