Shelagh Riley was the wife of Sean Riley and mother of Concepta. The Rileys were native to Ireland although Concepta lived in Weatherfield, England.

Although Shelagh and Sean had been initially wary of Concepta marrying someone who was not a Catholic they were won over and attended the wedding of Concepta and Harry Hewitt in Weatherfield. They were later joined in Ireland by Harry and Concepta when Harry agreed to take over the running of Sean's garage when Sean retired in 1964.
