This year I would like to remember one of our most valued supporters, Philomena Grene, of Grene Park , Dundrum.  Philomena sadly passed away on the 31st of October last year. May she rest in peace.  Each and every year for the past 24, I would return home, on the eve of daffodil day, to buckets of fresh daffodils outside my door.  Even when Philomena was unable to be out and about she always had someone else willing to carry on the tradition for her and the flowers have never failed to be there for me.
Philomena was, for many years, an active member of Tipperary & District Flower & Garden Club and had many winning entries in the annual Tipperary Show. Philomena will be greatly missed by all
her friends. Ar dheis Dé go raibh a ainm dilís.
