Who was Molly Darcy?

Molly Darcy was a special woman born in Dublin, Ireland in 1891 -special in that she lived for almost a century. She lived and associated with people who survived the Famine years 1845-51.

She stood outside the smoldering ruins of the GPO Dublin after the Easter Rising of 1916 with a baby in her arms. Molly coped with the hardships and deprivation of the Troubles, Black and Tans and the Irish Civil War.

She lost her husband (Robert "Sheriff" Darcy) in his prime and supported her family in the tough thirties, and through the Second World War by selling fish and fruit from a barrow in Dublin's Fair City. This was a time of extreme poverty when a mother's proudest boast was that her children were never barefoot.

Molly passed away in February 1991 just two months short of her 100th birthday. Five generations of Darcys were at her funeral with over 100 direct descendants present. Molly didn't leave a will of money or riches, but passed on a legacy of immeasurable wealth. She left her family a heritage of love, kindness and indomitable spirit, and the strength and determination to overcome life's adversities.

Her appreciation of life's simple pleasures and knowledge of nature's bounty has not been lost but has been passed down the generations and her grandson — Bill Cullen, one of Ireland's best loved celebrities — has continued her legacy with "Molly Darcys" at the magnificent Muckross Park Hotel in Killarney, Ireland, and now at Molly Darcys, Clayton. Bill has documented Molly's life in his best selling book, "That's a long way from Penny Apples."

Molly had lots of wise sayings and these were her favorites:

"If God is with you, it doesn't matter who's against you."

"If you can't do a man a good turn, never do him a bad one."

"Smile. I met a man today who didn't have a smile so I gave him one."

We look forward to celebrating this rich heritage and vibrant culture with you at Molly Darcys in St. Louis!
