As a teen I remember a “crowd” in our house. Minnie Murphy and her husband Tom, Nicky and Sadie Murphy and a few other visitors coming over to our house on “Dohey Square” St. Bride’s, Placentia Bay after the Saturday evening mass.
Every Saturday after mass there was always a few cups of tea, raisin buns, toast with molasses and or a stronger drink for some. It was inevitable that they would break out into songs and recitations.
Mrs. Minnie was the last of that crowd. Mrs. Minnie crossed over on April 30, 2019 she was 91.
Her voice and the songs that she and others sang in our house on Dohey Square and in many other homes live here:
