Part II. Our first housekeeper

As Fr O’Shea waited patiently for the completion of his new church at Peakhurst he wanted to find someone to be housekeeper. A plea was sent out to the parishioners and Brian Fallon approached his mother to see if she would take the position.

Dot Fallon set about caring for Fr O’Shea to the best of her ability; this meant cooking, cleaning, taking messages and handling all the day to day running of a parish house.
