In 1957 Kathleen came from Keenagh to work in the Sacred Heart Hospital in Castlebar where she spent a total of 25 years having taken a number of years out to raise her children. She worked there as a multi-task attendant and was loved by both staff and patients. Kathleen loved listening to country music especially Owen Mac, Tommy Fleming and her own relation Mark Roberts. Kathleen was a very stylish lady and especially enjoyed clothes shopping. She was a great cook and had a great interest in trying out different foods and recipes. She met her husband Martin in the Town Hall in Castlebar and they got married in 1961 and were due to celebrate their 60th wedding anniversary in December. She always enjoyed her many visits to her home place of Keenagh. Her children and her grandchildren and her great grandchildren were her pride and joy.
May her gentle soul rest in peace.
