Centenarian is kept up to date by her old school friend
Thursday, 24th August 2006

Although Mary Anne McManus from Kinawley has been living in the United States for many years, she is kept up to date on news from home by an old school friend. Mary Anne herself celebrated her one hundredth birthday recently in New Hampshire, and the friend with whom she corresponds, Mrs McCaffrey from Keelpark who now lives at Ashwoods in Enniskillen is two years older. Mary Anne has only returned to Ireland twice since she emigrated in the 1920s; her old home in Keelpark is now occupied by her nephew and niece, Patrick and Bernadette, and their mother Moira.
