FOUR north Kerry first cousins decamped to Killarney at the weekend for a joint birthday party celebrating their 50th birthdays!
Amazingly, they were joined by another cousin born around the same time to make it a night to remember - every bit as memorable as their joint fortieth in Killarney ten years ago.
First cousins Niall, Simon, Paddy and Damian and slightly more distant cousin Brenda Kennelly (nee Ahern) from Moyvane were joined by over 100 friends at the Killarney Oaks on Saturday, with some of the guests travelling from as far away as Thailand and Ghana!
The first cousins are the grandchildren of Peter and Catherine McGrath (nee Walsh) from Ballyline in Ballylongford.
"We had a great night and the party was still going strong into the early hours!" Simon McGrath told The Kerryman.
