It must be extremely rare for the oldest woman in a country to be only the fourth oldest living person.

It must be extremely rare for the oldest woman in a country to be only the fourth oldest living person.

It happened in Spain in the late 80s-early 90s when Aurelio Diaz, A.L.M., and Galo Leoz-Ortin were each alive simultaneously at 110. It also seems to have happened in Finland when Aarne Arvonen was alive (following the death of Tyyne Mäkinen in Oct 2008), since his two successors as the Finnish OLP were also men.

Are you sure there were no women older than Jussi Leskinen alive in the period leading up to Aarne Arvonen's death, and in the period when Viljo Kekola's was the oldest living person in Finland? They may have died before Jussi Leskinen became the oldest...

Overduidelijk misschien.

There weren't any; after Tyyne Mäkinen died on 2 October 2008 at 107, the top four oldest living people in Finland looked like this:

1. Aarne Arvonen (111)
2. Viljo Kekola (107)
3. Jussi Leskinen (107)
4. Tyyne Ylinen (107)

A rare occasion indeed.

heatwave116:Sadly, it seems that the anonymous man passed away between 27 April and 20 July.

Message to me from the Office of the President:
"According to our records the eldest Male was born  in 1913 and Female 1914."

Michael O'Connor is very likely the new OLM and OLP in Ireland, and the OLW is potentially Mairin Hughes.

19 Irish citizens older than 105 are known to have died in 2022; that breaks the record of 18 which has stood since 2011.

Just saw on Andrew's site that Bridie McMorrow's name was missing, and indeed her death notice was published yesterday.

Resident in London for more than 70 years, she was the oldest Irish citizen - 109 years 156 days.
