Tracey marks 40th with great party
FAMILY AND FRIENDS OUT IN FORCE
ALL the talk may have been about Oxegen, but there was a festival flavour in the air around Swords on Saturday night.
And it was helped by the news one of the weekend's headliners, The Black Eyed Peas, were spotted out in Wright Venue, fresh from their performance in the midlands.
Punters certainly had a feeling that it was shaping up to be a good night in The Harp and as always, Saturday was proving to be a real highlight at the North Street pub.
A great place for a chat, The Harp always delivers as it boasts of its great facilities, with its welcoming staff and entertainment, such as local covers outfit Oazis, are key factors in pub's rise since its reopening almost 10 years ago.
It's also perhaps why local girl Tracey Tonge decided to mark her 40th birthday there where a gang of friends and family joined at the celebrations.
After Dark was also there to catch up with Tracey and document the occasion and she was first up for a photo.
The Swords girl posed beside Sonia O'Dwyer in The Harp last Saturday and Sonia wished her good friend the happiest of birthdays.
Naomi Fagan had a similar message. Naomi was enjoying a few drinks with Lorraine Baitson and Sinead Cregan with the birthday girl herself. The group smiled for the camera.
Dorothy Lyle was next up. The bubbly Dorothy was seen laughing and joking with Pauline Somerfield and the ever present Tracey. The trio posed for the lens before ordering another round.
And finally Tracey wrapped up the night with Kelly and Peter Tonge. The far from camera-shy, Tracey thanked everyone for coming and hoped they enjoyed themselves as much as she did.
