Mansfield Drive was saddened by the recent passing of Angela Maher (nee Doran). Angela died peacefully, surrounded by her husband Billy and daughters Patricia and Siobhan, in the wonderful care of the Blackrock Hospice.

Angela was a Wexford woman through and through.

She was born in The Faythe area to the late Jack and Josephine (Jo) Doran.

From a young age, she enjoyed the outdoor life, helping her father grow vegetables on their farm in Castlebridge. From there she would cycle back to The Faythe to sell the produce in their shop at home.

Angela was never afraid of hard work. When she left school she trained as a hairdresser with Rita Cuddihy. After she qualified, she worked for the late Gertie Moloney, then at Crowning Glory and later from her home. Many of Angela's customers were long-standing, becoming great friends with her and enjoying the chat and banter.

At an early age Angela met her beloved Billy from Hill Street.

They married in 1966 and only recently celebrated 50 years of marriage. Angela and Billy were often referred to as 'two peas in a pod' - you never saw one without the other. Angela was devoted to her family, especially her two daughters Patricia and Siobhan, and her two grandchildren Dearbhail and Ronan. May she rest in peace.
