Actress Maureen O’Hara has died:
. . . O’Hara starred in the 1941 multi-Oscar winning drama, How Green Was My Valley, set in a Welsh mining village. She also regularly featured alongside John Wayne, in films such as the Quiet Man.
Born in Dublin, she moved to Hollywood in 1939 and later became a US citizen.
“Her characters were feisty and fearless, just as she was in real life,” her family said in a statement.
“She was also proudly Irish and spent her entire lifetime sharing her heritage and the wonderful culture of the Emerald Isle with the world.” . . .
She also starred in one of my favourite childhood films – The Parent Trap.
