Remembering my super aunt and privileged that she was my God Mother as well. Ironic that she ,,,, like me ,,, was a singer and a drmmer !!!
She had that sharp wit and wicked sense of humour. Enjoyed our get togethers here in Mayo and she was a great advisor.
Definitely a fashionista and could jive and boogie with the best of them . Lived life to the full and definitely emptied the bucket list ,,, a few times.
A shining example to us all and to Edward & Sarah - you haven’t lost a mother - you’ve gained an angel that will forever be close by. God bless - her legacy will live long in our memories .,...,,,.
