Mary's grandmother ran the Post Office at Abbeyside and it was here that the family lived.
Eddie Cantwell, Waterford County Museum was delighted to meet up with the family and took them to the now oldest untouched pub in the town, if not in the country, Alice O'Connor's Bar at Abbeyside.
Alice knew Mary's aunt Monica quite well, having lived across the road from her. Monica was the last in the Maher family to run the Post Office at Abbeyside.
The visitors were thrilled with the visit to the famous pub at Abbeyside. It was their first trip to Ireland and visiting the family grave at Abbeyside was the highlight of their visit.
