Miss Fanny Murphy. Congratulations from all of Council.
If you were not fortunate enough to be at Shillington Park on July 16 when Fanny gave her speech on growing up in North Crosby, then you missed a poignant, yet very funny story telling. Fanny – you are one in a million!
With Frances’ permission, I have printed it for your pleasure.
Thank you to the volunteers from North Crosby, Newboro and Westport who organized and participated in a fabulous day, reminding us of our roots. There were many informative displays – some were interactive, great food, wonderful music and rich story telling. Miss Fanny Murphy kept us in stitches as she talked about growing up in North Crosby. Special thanks to Westport Councillor Jacky Brady, who in addition to many other festival committee duties, kept the event alive on social media.
