Smurfs up? Up on a plane and coming home to Ireland, anyway...
One of my favourite Smurfit scions Tony -- eldest son of Michael -- returned to Dublin with his wife and kids after years in Monaco last Thursday. Tony and his other half, gorgeous former supermodel Sharon Devlin want their children to be educated in Dublin. The charming duo of Tony and Sharon -- the sister of Colin and Peter Devlin, of the band The Devlins, who are the partners of Sonya Macari and Lorraine Keane respectively -- had a blast in the south of France, mixing with the royal family of Monaco et al.
They have their lovely mansion in Johnstown to do a bit of famous Smurfit entertaining in. Tony held an unforgettable 40th birthday party in Dublin a few years ago, flying in an orchestra from Monte Carlo for the bash. Sharon's brother Colin had to make a midnight dash to Clonee, Co Meath on Wednesday with his wife-to-be, actress Sonya and her sis Virginia, when their mother Clara's Jack Russell Charlie Macari passed away.
"He was in the family for 14 years. We were all devastated," Virginia told me. She consoled herself by flying to Rome with fiance Kas and baby Thor leaving Colin and Sonya to mind their penthouse pad in Spencer Dock.
