Tim worked with with Kerry County Council for many years in the area and would be a familiar face in and around Castleisland. His late daughter, Maria ran the Castle Tavern for a few years in the late 1990s and was talking about opening a photographic studio there. She hung a selection of her excellent photographs she had taken in Italy on the walls of The Tavern. Life and its twists and turns dictated that Maria – God rest her – didn’t realise her dream of the studio.
For the second time in a week my thoughts were brought back to the creamery in Headley’s Bridge. First, early this week by the passing of Mrs. Hannah Mai Brosnan who lived beside the new creamery on the Woodline.
And now with the passing of Tim O’Sullivan of Meinleitrim. Tim was one of the gang of local men who worked on the creamery with Genie McGillicuddy in the early 1970s.
The work was laborious and tough going but the fun we had carried us through and Tim was in the middle of any devilment that went on.
We worked together on the refurbishment of the Bank of Ireland here in Castleisland in the mid 1970 before he headed off to join the council.
May God be good to him
