Reunion on the cards thanks to Lyons tea

AN Enniscorthy woman and her husband are looking forward to re-uniting her mother with a sister she has not seen for 16 years. Georgina and Damien Ahuir reside in Solsborough near Enniscorthy. She is originally from Bray in County Wicklow while he is a native of France.
Inspiration stuck recently when Damien was brewing tea and noticed details of the 'Bring The Talk Home' competition on a box of Lyons tea bags. They entered and won a ticket back to Ireland for Georgina's aunt Yvonne to be flown home from the UK.
The adjudicators were struck by the fact that Yvonne has not met her sister May for so long, due to a combination of health and financial reasons. Now the two sisters - family name O'Toole - are set to be re-united. Damien and Georgina are particularly looking forward to introducing the lady from Luton to their eight children for the first time.
'We told her and she was all delighted,' said Georgina after making the emotional phone call to England where her aunt has been living for many years. May and her husband Noel Vickers still reside in Bray.
The 'Bring The Talk Home' competition is still running via the Lyons Facebook page or by post.
