Kerri celebrates her 30th in style in Russells
I headed for Russell Gin Emporium for a special party which was being held for Kerri Hynes from Park Drive who was celebrating her 30th birthday.
Kerri who works for the Marshes was there with her sister Daire Hynes also from Park Drive who wanted to make sure she had a fantastic night.
They were accompanied by Jennie McBride from Dublin Road, Chandell Cooney and Sarah Casey both from Blackrock who assured me it was going to be a totally mad night for sure.
After this I headed over for a word with Nicole McCartney from Pearse Park who was just after arriving in with Aoife Pepper from St. Marys Gardens who told me the crack was only going to start to get going now that they were there.
It was about this time that a group of ladies in fancy dress arrived in collection for the Stillborn Unit in Drogheda hospital. They were led by the 'old man' Catherine McArdle from Cooley who told me they had based their collection primarily in the Edge Creative hair salon in River Lane during all of Saturday and then had got dressed up and come out around the pubs where they had received an overwhelming reaction from people.
Catherine was being ably assisted by Sonia 'demon woman' McMahon from Bay Estate, Lauren 'dead doll' Meehan from Newtownbalregan, Rachel 'Edwina Scissorhands' Tasker from Oakland Park, Anne 'dead bride' O'Hagan from Newry, Coilfhionn 'creepy nun' Matthew from Killeavy and were being kept an eye on by Gerard 'the pimp' Hoey from The Edge Creative who told me the girls had done a really great job both during the day and around the pubs.
After this I headed over for a quick word with Caoimhe O'Kane from Mullaharlin Road who was busy making sure everyone was being well looked after during the night, but was looking at a bit of trouble and was wondering how long it was going to be before h she was going to give her dad Timmy and uncle Sean their marching orders!
