THE family of the much missed of Cora Crennan (nee O’Brien) of Kilmantin Hill, Wicklow town have paid tribute to her on the second anniversary of her passing.

She had a huge heart, she loved life and had the best laugh.

“She adored people, their stories and wanted only a chat and strong cup of tea - leave the teabag in she’d say. Where there was good banter, she was in the middle of it.

“She loved her style and never passed a good bargain. She insisted on two papers a day in case she missed something and was never without her lipstick. Her favourite tunes were Elvis, Imelda May and of course her Daniel.

“Her friendships were from all over Ireland, down to her adventures in the Feis Ceol no doubt, in her own campervan, accompanied by her beloved sister Agnes and the best collection of tin whistles and mouth organs known to mankind - ready for devilment.

“She was our treasured Mam, a sister, grandmother, friend, set dancer, musician, globetrotter, walker for St Luke’s, make-up artist for the Wicklow Musical Society with her best pal Kay and entrepreneur. She was before her time and was many things to many people and a true force of nature.

“There will never be another like her, Cora Crennan a proud Wicklow woman, we all miss you.”
