REACHING her 100th birthday is a major achievement in itself, but being healthy enough in mind and body to still play the mouth organ is another thing altogether.

The third youngest of nine children, Peg Morgan was born to parents Mary and Patrick on June 1, 1920 in Clonderlaw, Kilmurry McMahon.

She attended Coolmeen National School before returning home to marry in Kilmurry McMahon.

Speaking to Mike McCartney on RTE Radio One’s Drivetime, Peg attributed her long life to living without worry.

“I don’t worry at all. I sing away for myself to pass away the day,” she said.

Members of Inis Cathaigh Kilrush Comhaltas Ceoltoiri Eireann visited Peg and played a few tunes for her birthday:
