Eily’s Report – 13th February

Dia is mhuire díobh go léir a cáirde and welcome to my Report.

Greetings dear friends, sorry for my absence last week when my dear sister-in-Law Jo (Joanne) Corkery went to her eternal rest. Many thanks to all who supported us in our grief. Your attentions were much appreciated. 77 is not old by today’s standards and we will miss her. She was part of our family since she and my brother Ted came from London to live in Rathmore, in the 90’s, where they  found great happiness among the friendly community there. After Ted’s passing sixteen years ago she continued  to live a full life. She endeared herself to many as a care worker and she took part in local fundraising events etc, many of which involved long walks which she so enjoyed accompanied by others of similar pursuits. She joined us on holidays over the years and when her health began to weaken.  Both members of my own family and her near neighbours in Shinnagh stepped in to help until it was evident that she could no longer live by herself in her own beautiful home . For the next three years while still being regularly  visited by family and friends  and taken to the CUH for treatment by them she got the royal treatment at the Care Home in Killarney, where she gently passed away on the day that God called her giving her two sons time to arrive from London at the closing  minutes.
