I have fond memories of Mary; Irish dancing in Traralgon, many events with the Irish-Australian club,, cups of tea with Mary and Arthur at home, seeing Mary at mass or down the street and stopping to say hello. A kind, gentle woman who will be fondly remembered. May you rest peacefully, Mary xxx

  5. RIP Mary and condolences from Wexford. I always look back fondly on Mary’s visits to Wexford and the wonderful Christmas I spent with Mary and Damo almost 10 years ago now. A wonderful kind lady and also a classic Reddy sense of humour too! Condolences from Jono Hughes and Eve Doran

  9. I still have memories as a 5 year old child of auntie Mary leaving Ireland all those years ago
    I would have loved to have been able to have spend a little more time a couple of years ago when I went to visit her it was a special moment and sad that we had to leave so quickly but still very special
    Auntie Mary (I called her my great auntie Mary because she was great and will be forever remembered) by me and I believe that by every one that knew her
    May she now rest in peace πŸŒ·πŸŒ·πŸŒ·πŸ’”πŸ’”πŸ’”

  11. Eamon Damien and all family members
    I have very fond memories of Mary when she would visit Ireland different times when I was growing up and I often think of the time I got to spend with her when I was living in Australia.

    Mary was a lady and a real character

    May she rest in peace
