Mary Agnes Conlon: the heart and soul of Kiltimagh.

Mary Agnes Conlon died in March 1981. She was a member of a very respected family; being a niece of the world handball champion, Jim Kelly, and her father was James Conlon of Cloondolagh. Mary Agnes was the eldest of a family of three.

The Conlons lived on Main Street. They rented a pub nearby. The family was well known for its generosity. Mary Agnes was very kind to natives of Kiltimagh, returning home on holiday. Indeed, she often gave a "baby power" to people before they left the town, on their way back to England or America.

Her passing left a great void in the town and country, alike. Old age pensioners were drawn to the pub on Friday. They knew that they would get the finest whiskey or brandy, with the measure overflowing. There, too, they would hear the latest stories, circulating around the town.

It was not only the senior citizens to whom she was generous; there was always something for the children, a few sweets or a bar of chocolate. They loved Mary Agnes, and were always willing to run messages for her.

Mary Agnes will never be replaced. She was the heart and soul of the town. But those who had the privilege to know her will remember that welcoming smile, from behind the counter of her small pub, always.
