Martin Napier from Kilcoole celebrated his 40th birthday at the Royal Hotel in Bray last weekend with his family and friends.

Martin was joined by his parents Jackie and Josie, his sister Mary and many relatives and friends for the occasion.

A resident of Lower Green in Kilcoole, Martin works as a manager in Dunnes food store on Bray's Quinsboro Road.

Around 30 of his colleagues from the store attended the party, as did plenty of his friends from home.

Some of his cousins came all the way from Cork for the celebration, and an aunt and uncle travelled from Galway to join cousins from Newtown and Kilcoole.

Everyone was looking forward to the party and it was Martin's sister Mary who took the lead in terms of the planning.

The evening included a slideshow of photographs of the birthday boy over the years.

Martin said a few words to the gathered crowd, thanking everyone for coming along to mark the happy occasion.

His actual birthday falls this week, so his family expect to mark the milestone birthday once again.

Martin had a fantastic night with plenty of chatting and dancing.

He received lots of generous gifts from everyone. The party included a bit of finger food, and a DJ who ensured the dance floor was full from start to finish.

Everyone enjoyed catching up, and spending some time with Martin.
