She had a son, Noelie Cauldwell in the army, with the 6th Bn

and she was a great character, always willing to have a chat while she worked.

Saw a couple of washing machines in Cavan a while back. Dunno how more expansive the
laundry system up there is, apart from that

Am told that Athlone has improved no end in this regard (laundry facilities)

there was no laundry facilaties in finner cmp in the 70s ya had to wash everything yourself
or throw your clothes in your car and drive to the laundry.
