The last thing I would want to do is publish this page but having listened to pressure
from others and on reflection that since I like others to allow me publish their
parties then I have to do likewise myself. So Ann and I are married 40 years and
we had a wee party at the house for family and a few friends on Friday, July 20th.
We were married on July 1st 1972. To facilitate the numbers we had a fine marquee
from Darren Curley and catering by Kate McAree. Kate did an excellent job and fed
us with the very best of food. We had a great night thanks to everyone there and
especially Paula and Dermot, Edelle and Declan who made all the arrangements, and
thanks to all for your good wishes. Fr. Macartan celebrated Mass prior to the festivities
and we thank him for a lovely ceremony. In lieu of gifts donations were made to two
local charities - Cancer Treatment Support and Shauna Fund.
