  3. So sad to hear of Auntie Chris’s passing. Our annual visit to Oranmore to see Chris and family was always a highlight of our holidays. Chris would prepare a lovely tea for all 8 of us and we enjoyed every bit of it. After Jim and Paddy returned from having a pint, a cèilidh was had in the kitchen. Thank you for all the lovely memories Chris. May you rest in peace.

  4. I first met Auntie Chris in the mid sixties just after she got married to Jimmy – she was a very kind and gentle person and you always got the most delightful welcome every time you visited her and Jimmy in Oranmore – I’ll always remember her warm smile and softly spoken voice.
