Molly was one of the founder members of The Order of Malta and has been fundraising for research into Cystic Fibrosis for over 30 years. Being involved  in the ICA, Meals on Wheels, the Writers group, the Flower Arrangers in the church, Padre Pio and one of the first women in the town to introduce the women’s studies, Molly has won awards and accolades in all she was involved in.  Now Molly still holds court at her knitting group in the senior citizens group every Tuesday and loves her friends there!

Along with many presents and birthday cards, Des Flynn presented Molly with a photo of her early days in the Order of Malta

Molly’s daughter Collette told Balbriggan.info “We are so very proud of her to say the least, not only because of her involvement and achievements but because of her caring and kind nature, always having time for everyone. We are so lucky to have had her in our lives for so long and love and cherish her always!”

Happy Birthday Molly, we hope your 90th birthday, like your lifetime, is full of love from family and friends, unbridled joy, unforgettable moments and, ultimately, many more happy memories…
