Phil O’Shea’s maiden name was Walsh. Her late husband Tom O’Shea was Vice Principal of the local boarding school run by the Oblate Order, which was recently closed. Phil spoke eloquently about her memories of the importance of that school and she describes her involvement with the Community Council and the Tidy Towns Competition in Malahide. The sale of Malahide castle and its contents was recalled. Phil has a remarkable store of information about the Talbot family and the history of the castle.
