Mrs. Dinah Barron (Obituary)

Mrs.Christina (Dinah) Barron,  “Barronville”, Bagenalstown, died peacefully at her home on 7th July 2007 surrounded by her loving family, after a relatively short illness. Her death has created a huge void in the life of her husband and family. Formerly Dinah Hayden from Carlow where her parents had a well established business in Tullow Street, Dinah  ran a very successful hairdressing salon beside the family business.

She met her husband, Paddy, in Carlow Hockey Club as both were enthusiastic players and Dinah was also a talented table tennis player  They were married on 25th June 1952 in Carlow Cathedral and, as Dinah was later to recall, their wedding day was truly the happiest day of their life and they remained devoted to each other until Dinah was called home by the Lord.  Dinah continued working in her hairdressing business until the birth of her firstborn, Roger, who sadly went to his eternal reward last year. After their marriage they first lived in Pairc Mhuire, Bagenalstown until they built their home, Barronville, on the outskirts of the town.

Dinah was a very talented musician and a violinist with Carlow Orchestra in the 40s and 50s, before her marriage. Her love of music never diminished and she took up the mandolin after her marriage, and with her husband, Paddy, playing guitar, son John on mandolo and the late Roger who played a range of wind instruments, they formed the Barron Family Group.  They used their musical talents to raise funds for charity and never as a commercial venture, playing in Co. Carlow and surrounding counties and were regularly featured on local radio.  Such was their musical ability that there were asked to play with the Dubliners in Concert in Dublin.

They were very much in demand as a musical group which took them away from home in the evenings but when their children were going to school decided it was more important to concentrate on their education and disbanded as a group. As Dinah said to Paddy “ Our children and grandchildren are our life and our future”.  However, they never gave up playing  and entertained friends and family on social occasions.

Dinah was a lady of great dignity, gentle and generous of nature with a warm and loving personality.  She endured her illness with courage and dignity, her thoughts always for others and never herself.

She is deeply mourned and sadly missed by her heartbroken husband, Paddy, sons John (London), daughters: Sheila (Dublin), Ruth Foley, Old Leighln, Miriam Monahan, Castle Town; sons-in-law Michael and Gerry, daughters-in-law Ann and Terry;  grandchildren David, Jennifer, Gillian, Kaija, Kate, Alexki, Ella, Desmond, John and Patrick.   She is also mourned by her brothers, Tony and Frank; sisters Molly, Ina, Bridie, Clare and Betty; brothers-in-law; sisters-in-law; nieces and nephews and a large circle of loving friends.

After Mass to celebrate her life in St. Andrew’s Parish Church Dinah was laid to rest in Ballinkillen Cemetery.

May she rest in peace.
