Dolan was affectionately known by her friends and family as "Maggie" in the village of Corofin, where she lived. She was a non-smoker and a teetotaller. She believed that what kept her going was being young at heart, despite her advanced age. She was an avid reader until her failing eyesight stopped her in her later years of life.
Dolan died on 2 December 2004, with her family nearby. Her death was widely reported in the Irish media the following day.
