Kerry Sinn Féin TD Martin Ferris has, on behalf of his party, offered condolences to the family of the late Mary Brassil, mother of John Brassil TD.
“On behalf of the Sinn Féin party in Kerry, I would like to offer my deepest and sincerest condolences to John and his sister Norma, and the wider Brassil family, on the passing of their mother Mary,” said Deputy Ferris.

A Key Figure

“Mary was a key figure in the success of, firstly her husband Noel and latterly of her son John, in many Kerry County Council and Dáil elections in the county.

“I know she was very proud to see John elected to the Dáil in 2016. She was also a successful business person in Ballyheigue and her loss will be felt by the entire community there. Ar dheis Dé go raibh a hanam dílis.”

The Maine Valley Post has, is and always will be a free resource for the people of the locality and its wider diaspora.

When we started in 2013, the intention was to be a weekly, online newsletter. Over time, the site has evolved into a much different beast with multiple updates on a daily basis.
Because of its nature as a digital publication, it brings with it certain expenses: computers and cameras that require updating and maintenance; internet hosting and access; to say nothing of the time and hard work that goes into the site. It all adds up…
Our online community has always been our greatest asset and a vocal supporter of the Maine Valley Post since day one.
