Sr. Patricia O’Connor and her sister, Mary Leahy, are pictured here about 1959 with one of their nieces. Sr. Patricia was born in 1921 in Kilbaha, Moyvane, Co. Kerry to Jack Bill O'Connor and Babe Shanahan (see earlier photos). After leaving school, she joined the Bon Secours nursing order and worked in the order's hospital in Cork. Sr. Patricia died in Cork in 2008 at the age of 87.

Sr. Patricia's sister, Mary, was born in 1918 in Kilbaha. In 1947 Mary married Jack Leahy, a well-known farmer and cattle-breeder from Lisaniskea, Knockanure, Co. Kerry. They lived on the Leahy family farm in Lisaniskea for over 45 years before moving to nearby Listowel. Mary died in 1996 aged 78.
