1952 Letter to Jimmy O'Donnell from Eileen Cooper

The letter is courtesy of Tom Kelly, current owner of the O'Donnell property.  The letter writer was Eileen Cooper (nee Williamson) who spent many holidays, when she lived in England, visiting the family and farm at Knockanglass, Co. Tipperary.  This would be sometime between 1900 and 1910.  Aunt Eileen was a very romantic person and as a girl enjoyed her stays in Ireland and loved to chase after the Irish lads.  Eileen was a gifted poet (see her story).
