Margaret Kelly left Clare when she was 16 years old in 1918 and she never went back even though she lived until she was 108 - possibly one of the oldest ever Clare people.  Five of her family went to New York - her oldest sister Molly just missed the Titanic in 1912.

She married an Englishman - Frederick Kelly and they settled in Queens.  They loved to dance at places like the Tuxedo and Jaeger House.

They had five children and in her later years she lived with her daughter Margie.
