Died Jan 2018

DEATH took place in January 2018 of Jeremiah “Darby” O’Connor at the age of 94. 


He was born in Athea with close family connections stretching on to Park, Athea and Knocknasna.    As these  three  areas  formed  a  well-known  and close-knit relationship with each other at this part of West Limerick it was no surprise that the O’Connor families acted with a strong interest & relationship with each other.Darby emigrated to the U.S.A. in 1948 and lived in Garnet Hill, Pennsylvania for the rest of his life.  He served over thirty years as Lieutenant with the Delaware


County Sheriff’s Office.  He was a man of strong Catholic faith and an active parishioner of St.  Thomas of Villanova RC  Church.  He was a fourth Degree Member of the Knights of Columbus


Bishops Kendrick Council; member of the Men of Malvern, Friendly Sons of St. Patrick and Republican Committee man in Radnor Township for many years.
