Wonderful Gobnait Twomey is 100 Years Young Today!

Thursday, 20th January 2022 marked the truly magnificent occasion of the 100th Birthday of the very wonderful and hugely popular Gobnait Twomey of Murphy’s Terrace, Millstreet.   It was indeed a great honour to be present during the afternoon at the very welcoming home of Gobnait when Canon John Fitzgerald, P.P. arrived to officially present the President’s Letter and Cheque and when many great neighbours and friends called to extend sincere congratulations on such an historic occasion.   Here we share some 21 images from our visit.  Tap on the pictures to enlarge.   Heartfelt congratulations to such a True Lady and Friend of All – the wonderful Gobnait Twomey whose amazing spirit and attitude to life is truly inspirational.  (S.R.)
