I was only in the door when I met Maria and she told me she wanted to thank everyone who had come over from Athlone IT specially to be there on the night.
The first group I met included Mark Finnegan from Feede, Maria’s brother-in-law Ryan McGeough from Mountpleasant and Dermot Quigley from Faughart, and I then met Frank J. Thompson from Longford and Enda Battle from Mullingar who told me they are at Athlone with Maria and said she is an Accountancy Technician.
Not too far away, I then got talking to Oliver Sheelan from Rathcor who wanted to be wished the best of luck to because he’s moving to Dundalk and he was with Tom Ford from Bellurgan and a chap who told me he was Gavin Malone from Cooley.
Next I managed a few words with Tracy and Peter O’Hare from Dromintee who were having a mad one with Grainne McDonald from Newry and not too far away, I got a word with the only known man in town that has a Rocky Marciano t-shirt and he is Kevin Johnson from Beechmount Drive.
After this, I then got a word with Eoin McDonnell from St. Marys Road who was there with Darren Tierney from Coes Road and Niall Clarke from Forkhill who are all big mates with Maria and were going to large it big time once D’Baz got the tunes in order.
Not too far away, I then caught up with Emer Heeney and Michelle Ryan both from Newtownbalregan and who should I meet next but Maria Brady from Mill Road and she was with Eileen Woodcock from Greyacre Road and she wanted to say a big hello to her gorgeous grandson Adam.
Next I then got a few words with Rosemary O’Rafferty, Hackballscross who was there with Maria’s sister Deirdre Collins and her kids Dervla and Eoin who had all come over from Portsmouth specially for the party and were having a brilliant time altogether.
After this I had the pleasure of talking to Gillian Woodcock and her sister Nicola Ayres who were there with Nicola’s husband Daniel and they had all come over from Bognor Regis specially for the mad party weekend and they wanted to say a big hello to their special little nephew Adam too.
Next I met a group who included Hanora Cronin from Mountpleasant, Niamh Duffy from Faughart, Tara McGeough from Mountpleasant, Rory O’Hagan from Ravensdale who told me they were having a brilliant night and were sitting beside Maria’s cousin Declan Ward, Castleblayney who was there with his parents Noel and Rita.
Next I met Carl Clarke from Laurel Brook Gardens who told me he was there with his sister Joanne and brother Andrew along with his mates Eamonn McCann from Beechmount Drive, Laura Cronin from Knockbridge and Andrew and Margaret Clarke from Kilkerley who all wanted to make sure Maria had a cracker of a night.
I then made my way through the crowds until I met Brendan Begley, Newtownbalregan who was with Jennifer Reynolds, Togher and they were seated beside Martin Craven, Roche and Adel Begley, Dublin Road (hoped I spelt it right this time)!
Meanwhile, I then got talking to Breda and Oliver Marmion from Kilcurry who assured me they were having a great night, after this I met Caroline Dunne and Damian Watson both from Roscommon.
Not too far away, I got a word with a group who included Colin McDonnell, Anne Street who was with Shane Black, Glenwood, Catherine Bishop, Anne Street, Sandra McEneaney, Beechmount Drive and hard working Declan Lawless, Oaklawns who was
taking a well earned break and chilling with all his mates. Colin also told me to check out the Borderline Comedy Club when they perform in the Derryhale on May 28th.
After this I managed a few words with Annmarie Brady, Willowdale, Caroline McArdle, Ashling Park who were both certainly getting into the swing of things and told me they were with Philip Clarke and who wanted a special mention for Emmett who was working in McManus on the night and couldn’t make it to the party.
