On Saturday evening, 3rd November 2018 in the presence of her three brothers and sister, her six children, her seventeen grandchildren and her twelve great-grandchildren as well as her many relations and friends – the wonderful Lally Healy of Pound Hill, Millstreet celebrated her 90th Birthday in the beautiful setting of the Wallis Arms Hotel. The most enjoyable occasion was video recorded by Lally’s brother, Brendan (Murphy). Great credit is due to the dedicated organisers of the very special event. They arranged a supremely impressive setting with a special booklet, historic family photographs, excellent musical entertainment provided by John White and Michael Murphy and deciding on a delicious meal menu. One of the many highlights of the occasion was the recitation of a brilliant poem about Lally’s inspirational life by Marie Healy. Marie had composed this truly great poem. When Lally was asked what was her secret living into her 90s she replied: “Hard work and keep your mind busy”. And one of Lally’s favourite past times is knitting which she approaches with uplifting creativity and generously gifts many completed items to CUMH. Sincere congratulations to 90 years young Lally as she begins her very active life into her 90s. Here we share some twenty images from the magnificent event. Click on the images to enlarge. (S.R.)
