In memory of Eileen Bryars

Eileen Bryars

Eileen was born in 1934, the second oldest child of Patrick and Mary McStay. Living on Whinny Hill, Eileen attended the primary School on Castle Hill before going to work in Blane’s factory. Norman and Eileen were married here in Gilford on 26th September 1955 and originally set up home in Red Row before moving to their present home in Dunbarton Bungalows. She loved travelling and had visited New York, Canada but her favourite place was Salthill in Galway where they spent many a family holiday. Warrenpoint and Newcastle were also favourite spots.

Eileen was a devoted mother and grandmother. She loved music and in particular loved listening to Pavarotti, although sometimes had to listen to him in a different room as Norman wasn’t just as keen!

A woman of great faith, Eileen was a faithful Mass goer to St. John’s in Gilford until ill health forced her to remain at home. After suffering dementia for some years, Eileen passed away in the early hours of Saturday morning.

Our sympathy goes to Eileen's husband Norman, sons Gerald and Christopher, daughters Rosemary and Annemarie, sisters Patricia and Agnes, brothers Hugh and Eddie, sons-in-law, daughters-in-law, grandchildren and great grandchildren.
