    I was sad to read about Rosemary.
    She and her sister Maura taught me, 2 of my siblings and at least 4 cousins Irish dance at the Irish American Club in Waterbury when I was much younger. Her dad Dan would play the accordion and her mom would collect the dues at the door. Very fond memories and some Irish step dancing many of us remember and can still do!
    Peace to all the Cliffords and Stauntons.

    Nancy and I send our sincere condolences to “Bobby’s” family, especially to her sister Maura. We are cousins of Cliffords from Callinafercy, County Kerry Ireland. Wonderful woman and a wonderful family. Sad that she is no longer with us. Nancy and Frank Greaney Walnut Creek CA.

    Please accept my heartfelt sympathy for your great loss. My father, Richard Geghan was Rosemary’s mother’s first cousin. His mother was Mary Carey Geghan and they were McKennas from county Kerry. I knew Rosemary, Maura, Mary and Dan who visited at my grandmother’s house when I was a child. May your happy memories of the past bring you a measure of peace and comfort in the days ahead. Sincerely, Carey R. Geghan
