29 APRIL, 2021. Marie Josephine Kelly SSL, more affectionately known as Sr Joey, celebrated her 102nd birthday on March 30. With all the Covid-19 restrictions in place in Nursing homes and elsewhere, Méabh Ní Úallacháin SSL was able to visit her a couple of weeks later to mark her special occasion. They spent about 30 minutes in each other’s company and shared a few laughs about the joy of a little drop of Baileys, which Joey loves, and when asked if there were times during the lockdown when she might not have had any Baileys left, her answer was, "That would have been a tragedy!!" We both concluded that maybe the Baileys was adding to her long and happy life, who knows!
