Leo Murphy’s Wonderful Surprise 80th Birthday Party on Saturday

We were privileged to be present on Sat. 7th April 2018 for the superbly organized Surprise Birthday Party at the Wallis Arms Hotel, Millstreet of Leo Murphy of Boherbue and formerly of Pound Hill, Millstreet.  Leo was accompanied by his wife, Eileen and was joined by his sister Mary (who presented one of her exquisite paintings to Leo), brothers Brendan and Christopher.   Leo’s sister, Lal, had another family celebratory occasion on the very same evening.  Leo’s children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren created a wonderful atmosphere and were present when Leo blew out the candles of his 80th Birthday Cake.  Musician Joe Guerin added greatly to the occasion when the dance floor was constantly full with talented dancers.   We also get to meet the youngest child present at the Birthday Party.  Photographer Noreen Fitzgerald  captured some splendid family groups before the meal. Here we share some 9 images which we recorded at the most enjoyable occasion.  Click on the pictures to enlarge.  (S.R.) [read more …] “Leo Murphy’s Wonderful Surprise 80th Birthday Party on Saturday”
