Paddy says thanks
Paddy Kelly, Ardlogher, Cloone held his 70th birthday on Saturday, 15th March in Teresa Kennedy’s Lounge, Aughoo, Ballinamore. I wish to thank all the people who attended. Firstly Teresa Kennedy and her staff for providing a wonderful meal and wine and top class drink. Also my sister Mary, nieces, nephews who organised the whole event. Josie Creamer who set up excellent sound and microphones, he also drummed very well during the night and Michael Solans, Harry Flynn and my brother, Peter who travelled from Cavan, Mai Malone (Reynolds), who travelled from Woodbrook, my nephew Adrian, who travelled all the way from Dublin. He had to go back to Dublin next day to play in St Patrick’s Day parade as he has become a member of the army band in Dublin and last but not least, all you good neighbours and friends for your birthday wishes and card, money and presents. I appreciate very much, thanks a lot to each and everyone of you. Mise le Meas Padraigh O’Cheallaigh. I hope I haven’t left anybody out if I have my apologies. Paddy Kelly.
