Believe it or not, I have just had a great chat with Bridie Maloney who was mentioned in the first post above. Bridie is now a resident of Abbeybreaffy Nursing Home, which is situated just off the new Ballyvary Road (N5)about 4 miles out of Castlebar.She looks well and I got the same old greeting, which has never changed:"How'ya, have a got a fag for me". I asked her did she remember where she used to live and quick as a flash, she replied "Newantrim Street".
I remember the tale about a local priest and some friends bringing Bridie, and others for afternoon tea to a Westport hotel, many years ago. Bridie was so delighted and told the world afterwards that she was in Westport and had high tea on a low table!
