    • Excerpt from "Writings of Brother E"

      Ellen Power, the oldest daughter of Mary “Hopkins” Power, married Martin Rea who worked in her mother’s bakery, ...

      They lived at first in the Shortcourse (The Rope Walk, as our elders were wont to call it) and finally in 15 Barrack Street, where the last survivors of the large Rea family still reside. ...

      My memories of Aunt Ellie are very fresh. I still recall her figure, with the kindly smile and the grey head, still standing at the fire in the hearth and gently arguing with her famous “character” of a son, Gerry, generally pleading with him to go down to Aunt Nan’s shop to collect the offal meat at the cellar. She was a very devout woman and instilled a loyalty in her family to religious observances of their Catholic faith. Thanks to her vigilance and her own good example, the Catholic tradition was faithfully passed on to the children, Maurice, John, James, Gerry, Michael, Minnie and Nellie of the Rea family.
