Obituary: Maureen O’Hara

“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.
