On Saturday 20th August family, friends and neighbours gathered at the home of Lucy O’Halloran, Collins Park, as she celebrated her 100th birthday. Fr Tom celebrated a Mass of Thanksgiving and presented Lucy with the traditional cheque from President Higgins and a letter of congratulations. Born in Spanish Point on 20th August 1922, Lucy emigrated to America like so many of her generation, living and working in New York.
In 1986, she returned to Ireland and made Collins Park, Ennis, her home. Lucy enjoys good health and the company of family and friends. We congratulate Lucy and wish her continued good health and happiness.
