She is described as a wonderful woman by her children. Her family kept her busy and she often worked from 6 in the morning until 12 at night looking after them. She was quiet but always had a word for everyone

She didn’t drink alcohol. She would occasionally go to the pub at Wellington Bride with her children but would only drink orange juice. She was a good singer and sang while working, and she could sometimes be persuaded to sing a song at family gatherings, with ballads like Kevin Barry among her favourite tunes.

This is Maggie’s eldest son Nicky, talking about her in an interview recorded in March 2016.
