Judge Mary Murphy Brennan died this week.

A Charlestown native born of two Irish immigrants, Brennan worked her way up to become the first presiding female justice on the Charlestown District Court — at a time when she had virtually no female professional role models.

Judge Brennan's daughters joined us to remember her.
