  • Notes 
    • Sarah attended Dorsey Junior school, the teacher (Miss McMahon) was ahead of her time (eg lots of scissors & paper etc). The Headteacher was sacked for allegedly interfering with a girl. Therefore dad (Francis Byrnes) moved Sarah to Aughanduff school. (Byrnes' Red Book - hand-written notes from Sarah Byrne's siblings). Left school at 14. At age 16 moved to Cullaville, worked as live-in housekeeper for Headteacher & wife of Clonalig school. (Byrnes' Red Book). Left after one year due to lack of free time (Sarah Byrnes).
      Sarah worked for Crawley’s Grocery, Canal St., Newry. Later became live-in housekeeper and subsequently shop assistant for Kane’s grocery store near Camlough. Sarah would cycle home Saturday evening, and cycle back to Camlough Sunday evenings. During the late 1930s or early 1940s Gussy Kane introduced the first mobile shop and Sarah served customers throughout the border area of Counties Armagh and Louth in this new and innovative venture. And why the nick-name Cissie? Well it was her name from her younger siblings (Sarah's conversation with son Peter).
      Sarah met her future husband (Peter Hannaway) at the wedding of Sarah's brother Frank Byrnes in 1944 (from Patsy Collins, Levelamore-m Grey).
      On 26 June 1946 Sarah married Peter Hannaway in his parish church of Lislea. They were joined by Peter’s sister Mary and John Doherty in a double wedding celebration.
      The following year Sarah & Peter moved to London and had eight children: Patrick, Peter, Eamon, Anne, Seamus (Terry), Gerard, Don and Vincent. (Vincent died 10th October 1963 aged about 6 weeks. He is buried in the children's section of St Patrick's Cemetery, Leytonstone, London).
      In about 1984 Sarah and her husband retired back to Ireland settling in Avenue Road, Dundalk, Co Louth.
