THE Ramsey family may have saved a few quid on birthday celebrations over the years but there will be no expense spared when the three siblings get together this weekend.

For Megan, Jack and Sophie were all born on the same day – and they're not triplets.

This Saturday, radiology student Megan will turn 21, her brother Jack will be 18 and sister Sophie will be 16.

"January 25th is extra special in our house," said proud mum Anne.

"It is an amazing coincidence that I had all three on the same day, years apart."

Only youngest child Conor wasn't born on the same day. He will be 14 this June.

"It did save some money when they were little and you could have three birthdays done and dusted in one day. But as they've got older, they've all wanted different things.

"This Saturday, however, we are celebrating together and there are special milestone ages for all three of them."

Megan is flying home to the Tyrone border town of Castlederg from Liverpool, whilst Jack's friends from Omagh CBS and Sophie's pals from Sacred Heart School in Omagh will also be there.

Driving instructor dad Dessie (52), and mum Anne (48), are planning a huge party. "We're expecting a big crowd at the house," said Anne. "We have relatives in Roscommon, Antrim and Donegal coming as well."

Daughter Megan says she can't wait to get home. "We are all very close and having the same birthday as a brother and a sister is very special," she said. But will they all have to share a single birthday cake? "Yes," said Anne, "but it will have three tiers."
