Maureen O’Hara’s only daughter has passed away, aged 71

May she rest in peace

Bronwyn Fitzsimons passed away in Glenagariff, Co. Cork.

The only daughter to Maureen O’ Hara, Bronwyn passed away at the age of 71.

Bronwyn was the Miracle on 34th Street star’s only child with William Price. The death is not being treated as suspicious as the pensioner was found dead sitting in an armchair in her Cork home.

Although O’Hara and Price were married, Bronwyn took her mother’s maiden name, Fitzsimons.

Fitzsimons was an actress just like her Hollywood mother, starring in productions such as The Virginian and a movie, The Ravagers.

The Quiet Man star O’Hara passed away in Idaho in November last year at the age of 95.

Miss Fitzsimons is survived by her one son, Conor Beau Fitzsimons.
