Special anniversary for Marian and Liam
Marian and Liam Kelly celebrated their 40th wedding anniversary as well as Marian's 60th birthday at the Parkview Hotel in Newtown recently.
The Greystones couple met when they were just teenagers. 'I wasn't even supposed to be out!' laughed Marian.
Over 100 people came to their party, including old friends, neighbours and relations. Their son Paul and his wife Joyce as well as daughter Sandra and her husband Andy were there, as were the four grandchildren, Ruth, Sam, Sebastian and Reilly.
'The King' himself appeared, with a special appearance on the night by Elvis for lifelong fan Liam.
'It was like the 21st I never had!' said Marian, who said they both had a wonderful time at the party.
There were two cakes, one for the birthday and one for the anniversary and the couple thought the hotel was absolutely brilliant.
