Celebrations for Hannah’s 88th

A true Tralee woman, Hannah Horan celebrated her 88th birthday on Saturday at The Rose Hotel with her family.

Hannah’s birthday was not until Tuesday, 12th, but Saturday suited everyone for a celebration.

Hannah was married to the late Sean Horan from Cloghane, Ballyard - Sean passed away 11 years ago, they had been married 60 years and had a family of nine.

Hannah was formerly Bentley, her parents were Charles and Christine and she was one of five siblings. She grew up first in Mary Street before the family moved to Kevin Barry’s Villas. When she married Sean Horan, whom she met on a night out in Tralee, they settled in Mitchels Road where she reared her nine children - John, the late Michael, Marie, Billy, Pat, Geraldine, Paul, Des and Jeffrey. For Hannah, family comes first and she is very close to her 18 grandchildren and 13 great-grandchildren who all adore her.
