Mary Rose Connor’s family were involved in farming and she proudly recalls the many prizes won by the family with their fine plough horses. She is a native of Kill Valley Quarter and was educated in Naul. From her earliest years, she displayed a real talent for sewing and she went on to make her career as a seamstress working for the local big estates. One of her greatest customers was the Baker Estate in Mulahow. She has clear memories of the Black and Tans in Ireland and provided some telling anecdotes about these troubled times.
