Acknowledgement and First Anniversary

Died December 17th 2019

As We remember Connie, we his family would like to thank all those who sympathised with us on our sad loss. We wish to acknowledge and offer our heartfelt thanks to our extended family, friends, neighbours and his former teammates for their valued help and support.

We would like to thank all those who attended his funeral and sent cards. A special thanks to all the priests and undertakers for their assistance.  We are particularly grateful to the staff of Marymount Hospice for their compassion and kindness

In memory of a much loved Father, Brother, Uncle, Granddad & Great Grandfather

Noreen O’Connor (née O’Leary), West End, Millstreet and Catskills, New York, U.S.A.

Nora O’Connor, age 90, passed away on Thursday, December 10, 2020 with her family at her side. She was born and raised in Millstreet, County Cork, Ireland. She later went to school in England, and trained to be a nurse before moving to New York to live with her aunt, where she continued with her nursing career in Jamaica, Queens. Nora married Daniel O’Connor on January 19, 1960 and moved to the Catskills, where they bought Elsie’s Brass Rail. They ran the bar during the 1960s and 1970s as “O’Connor’s Brass Rail”. Nora’s kitchen was always open for a cup of tea or one of her famous hamburgers at lunchtime. Her summers were spent caring for the many families that came to spend their vacations at the resort. After selling the Brass Rail in 1980, Nora went back into nursing. She worked at the Holy Name Academy, cared for retired Mercy Care Nuns, and later worked at Mercy Care – St. Peter’s in Albany. Nora retired from nursing in 1995 to enjoy her pride and joy-her grandchildren. There was always a cookie after school at Nana’s. Nora always enjoyed traveling “back home” every other Christmas to Ireland with her children, and in later years traveling to weddings of her nieces and nephews. Upon retirement, Nora enjoyed many bus trips sponsored by St. John’s with her good friends, Mary Fitzgerald, Marylyn Mahoney, Francis Reinhardt, and Ann Kiefer. Nora had great faith and a caring nature. She was predeceased by her husband Daniel in 1992; and by her brothers, Jerry (Dermy), Daniel, and William. Nora is survived by her sister, Kitty and her brother, James, both of Millstreet, County Cork, Ireland; by her daughter, Cathy (Neil) Salisbury, and her son, Jerry (Doreen) O’Connor; her grandchildren, Connor and Danielle Salisbury, and Logan, Liam, and Aidan O’Connor; and her many nieces, Ellen O’Leary Collins, and nephews. A special thanks to her caretaker, Maria Corrado, for the past 6 months and to St. Peter’s Hospice. Calling hours will be held on Tuesday, December 15th from 9am to 10:30am at the A.J. Cunningham Funeral Home, 4898 State Route 81, Greenville. A Funeral Mass will be offered on the 15th at 11am at St. John the Baptist Church, 4987 State Route 81, Greenville, followed by burial in Greenville Cemetery. Those wishing to remember Nora in a special way, can make memorial donations to either St. John the Baptist Church, PO Box 340, Greenville, NY 12083 or to the Community Hospice, 310 S. Manning Blvd. Albany, NY 12208. Condolences can be posted at ajcunninghamfh.com.

Possible Local Link with Soccer Star Caoimhín Kelleher

We thank Angela Twomey in Dublin (whose mother – Mary Kelleher -was a native of Minor Row, Millstreet) for the following very interesting information.   Angela and her husband Jerry (from Millstreet) have been in touch with their Kelleher Cousins yesterday and say: “We believe there’s a Millstreet connection with Caoimhín Kelleher, the young Liverpool goalkeeper. We think his maternal grandfather was Jim Hegarty, the former creamery manager in Kilcorney. Caoimhín’s mother trained in Limerick PE college with Brian McSweeney of Millstreet and Cobh and his late father was Ray, a PE teacher in Pres.”

We extend sincere thanks to Angela and Jerry Twomey on sharing what is now a second link with a true Sports Star.  Just a short time ago Joan Galwey (née Corkery) revealed Tipperary’s Colin O’Riordan’s direct connection with Millstreet also.   Two Sport Stars with Millstreet Connections now added to the already renowned sporting tradition in Millstreet Parish.
