A Regular in Castleisland and Scart

Among those paying tribute was singer Tim Dennehy who wrote:
“So sad to hear this. Anne was a good friend, great dancer and set dance teacher and was a warm, generous, lovely person. May her rest be peaceful.”
Anne reposed in Tarrant’s Funeral Home, Millstreet on Wednesday evening from 6pm to 8pm followed by removal to St. Patrick’s Church, Millstreet Town.
Her requiem mass is on this Thursday morning at 10am followed by cremation to Island Crematorium, Ringaskiddy, Cork.
