Tommy & Kathleen Ryan

Published by at 9:28 am under News

Tommy and Kathleen Ryan were married in the Church of the Most Precious Blood in Cabra West in 1958. I had the pleasure of meeting and talking to this wonderful couple who are 54  years married today. Now isn’t that a record to be proud of? Tommy started off his working life as an apprentice butcher and Kathleen once worked for a short period in Crean’s Soap Factory in North King Street. Tommy was born a southsider until his family moved to Cabra West when he was about 14 years old. Kathleen was 3 years old when her parents moved from Church Street to Cabra West.
