The Irish Times, 31 August 1933
   At the age of 104 years, Mrs. Mary Ahearne, Cratlee, East Athea, Co. Limerick, died. Mrs. Ahearne was in good health up to a few months ago, when she accidentally fractured her leg.
   She was born near Kiskeam, Co. Cork, and had a clear recollection of incidents associated with the famine years. She remembered the temperance movement of Father Mathew, and although not present at any of the meetings addressed by Daniel O'Connell, she heard much about them at the time.
