Peggy McGrane Obituary, Death – Peggy McGrane, who had been ill for some time, died away peacefully today. The club would like to extend its deepest condolences to Siobhan Mooney and the McGrane family on the loss of their loved one. Peggy, whose maiden name was Floyd, was a remarkable woman who was renowned far and wide for her generosity and sage advice, as well as for the strength of her character and the importance she placed on her family and community.
Peggy resided in Monknewtown for nearly her entire life, even though she was originally from County Louth, which is just across the “border” from Monknewtown. There, she raised her family alongside our club grounds with her husband, Larry, and their six children. Larry was a founding member of our neighboring club in County Louth, Glen Emmets, and the Gaelic Athletic Association (GAA) was deeply ingrained in both of their bloodlines. Her home, which was located next to the Monknewntown Church, was known as a warm and inviting place, and she enjoyed nothing more than being encircled by her family.
Which included her children, grandchildren, and even great grandchildren. Recently, Peggy and her family celebrated the occasion of her 95th birthday together. Peggy’s husband, Larry, as well as her son, Noel, both passed away before her. Her daughter Siobhan, her son-in-law Peter Mooney, and their family all contribute significantly to our club and are respected members here. Peggy’s daughters Ann, Mary, Ailish, and Siobhan, as well as her son Larry, sons-in-law Brendan, Frank, John, and Peter, daughter-in-law Ann, and all of Peggy’s grandchildren and great-grandchildren, are in our thoughts and prayers during this difficult time.
