Abina Worked at Moran’s Drapery

Older Castleisland natives and residents will remember Abina as she worked in Moran’s Drapery / Jamesie Tangney’s at No. 33 Lower Main Street in the 1960s.

I remember her as my grandmother, Ellen Reidy would send be to town for errands and one of them would be to get her jar of Ponds Cold Cream and she always told me to ask for Abina. I met Abina in Tralee one day last year and I recognised her from all those years ago. The dark hair may have gone but the pleasant face and the friendliness remained with her. She remembered me also as the lad with the foxy, red, curly hair. That too is gone as things do.

May God be good to Abina.
