       Mary Rutkauskas-King Memorial Garden

 

Officially opened on Sunday 25th August 2013.

 

Dedicated to Mary Ruthkauskas-King 1927-2010, late of Carrigeen, her husband James,

 

their children, Mary, Robert, Katie, Patrick, Johanna, Jim, Cornelius, Margaret, baby Terry and Terry .

 

We were most fortunate to have in our midst, Fr. John Casey, also a native of Carrigeen who was home on holidays from Texas.  

 

We are indebted to the King family for their generosity, and we hope when they return to Kilbehenny  the garden  will be in full bloom.

History of Mary King Garden

 

On 10th January 2013 Maryte Rutkauskas King  of Canada made contact with Kilbehenny Community Centre through this website.

 

She and her sister Kit, who resides in Manchester, had just been to Ireland and visited Kilbehenny, their ancestral home.

They were thrilled to see our new Community Centre, and noticing that there was still a lot of work to be done,very generously decided to become involved .

Their mother, Mary King  who was born and grew up in Carrigeen, Kilbehenny, had a wonderful appreciation of nature, especially  the Galtee Mountains.

 

They suggested opening a Memorial Garden in her honour, and much to the appreciation of the people of Kilbehenny, a hugely generous donation was lodged to Kilbehenny Community Centre Account.

 

The project was carried out by local volunteers and will continue to be maintained by them,

 

Thank you Maryte
