Joseph Francis Mooney, son of Andrew Martin Mooney and Catherine Mary Buckley, was born on 27 April 1922 in the Kincora Hotel, 5 Gardiner Place, Dublin, It was soon after his birth that the family went to live at Enniskerry.4,5,6,3 In later life Joseph Francis Mooney was known as Frank.2

Joseph Francis Mooney was baptised at The Pro-Cathedral, Marlborough Street, Dublin, sponsored by his Uncle Frank and Aunt Maggie7 and made his First Holy Communion on 11 June 19328 and was confirmed on 14 May 1935.9 Joseph started at theTechnical School, Bray, (£1 5s 0d a quarter up to July 1938) on 20 September 1937.10 He was employed by the Home Office in England after he came out of the RAF being made redundant after Maggie Thatcher came to power.11,12 He lived in Lewisham, London, in 1994.2

In a letter to Tony Mooney in 1994, his sister, Lila, said he was ill in Hither Green Hospital and wrote:

I was only over with him in June and he seemed OK. He lived in an old Georgian house set in flats until 4 years ago. Then the council moved him to a flat on his own and he has hated it from the start - he was used to living with people in the house. As a result he has had a nervous breakdown, we think.2

Frank died on 5 September 1994 at age 72 at Hither Green, Lewisham,13,14,15,4,16,17 He was buried at Hither Green Cemetery (grave number AK552). The funeral Directors were FA Albon & Sons, Arthur Stanley House, Calling Road, London, SE16 2TN (tel. 071 237 3637)

Hannah Hardingcame from Tipperary SR.5 She was the niece of the famous Maurice Davin after whom a GAA Park in Carrick-on-Suir is named and who was Dermot Dorgan's father's favourite uncle.

The following appeared on the internet on 12 October 2002:

MAURICE DAVIN had the same pride in native customs that fostered manliness. His concern was to preserve the dignity and vindicate the prestige of native athleticism and rescue it from humiliating alien influences. As one of an outstanding family of athletes, he resented these and no one was better fitted to lead the revolt against them. For this and because of his personal prowess in the arena, Maurice Davin may justly be acknowledged as the "Father of Modern Irish Athletics'". He was born in Carrick-on-suir, Co. Tipperary, 29th June 1842 and died on 26th January 1927.1,6

Hannah Harding married Willie Mooney on 12 February 1896. The marriage was solemnized in the RC Chapel of St Joseph's, Berkely Road, Dublin, in the Registrar's District of No 1 North City in the Union of North Dublin in the County of City of Dublin by John Byrne CC. They were both described as of full age; William as a bachelor and Hannah as a spinster. The witnesses were Patk J Mooney and Elizabeth Harding. There was no issue.1,4,5,3,7,8

It is not known where they lived after they were married but they are known to have lived at some time at 49 Rathdown Road, North Circular Road, Dublin 7.4,9,10 Hannah Harding lived at 28 Whitworth Road, Drumcondra, at the time of the marriage3 and was described as a Lady on her marriage record.3 Sometime after her husband died Hannah lived in Carrick-on-Suir.11,6
