A special Mass to remember the deceased employees of the Denny factory was held in St John’s Church on Friday evening followed by refreshments and plenty of stories in the Greyhound Bar.
Michael ‘Rossa’ Donovan, Tralee, was the lead organiser and was delighted that there is still so much consideration given to the former employees. “I think it’s important to remember,” he said. “The factory was such a big part of life here in the town - we had some great times there.”
“Some amazing characters worked in the factory over the years. It was a like a big family and was very important for the town,” said former Denny employee Martin Reidy.
Friends and family partied with Sinead Moran, Tralee, and Liam Perry, Wales, at the Ballyroe Heights Hotel on Saturday night following the couple’s wedding in sunny Tenerife last month.
There were many hoarse throats on Sunday - as around 100 guests, including Sinead’s grandparents from Leitrim, joined a sing-song which continued into the small hours of the morning.
