She’s always asking me to watch out for exhibitions and anything to do with the bombing. I know she wants me to take her down to your library soon for the 70th annversary. Feel free to contact me via email or write to Betty Keogh 20 Heskin Court, Elm Park, Mount Merrion, Dublin 4 Many thanks, look forward to hearing from you or anyone who remembers my mam.
