Fam­ily and friends turn out for Lau­rence’s 30th

Bray People - - Social Scene -

LAU­RENCE SHAW, orig­i­nally from Larne, cel­e­brated his 30th birth­day last Satur­day night in the Porter House sur­rounded by fam­ily and friends.

His girl­friend Beth, from Shankill, as well as al­most 60 other peo­ple joined in the fun, in­clud­ing a con­tin­gent from his home­town who trav­elled all the way to Bray for the party.

Lau­rence, who works as a car­pen­ter, had the party or­gan­ised for him by fam­ily mem­bers, in­clud­ing Beth’s broth­ers Pa­trick and Bren­dan in Shankill Tyres, as well as their nephew Joe.

His dad, also Lau­rence, at­tended the event and kept the troops en­ter­tained with his im­pres­sive opera singing. His mum Sheila was also there and had a great time. Beth and Lar have two sons, Liam and Pa­trick, who are aged 5 and 2 and were be­ing looked af­ter on the night by their aunt Cather­ine. The guests were well fed with a spread of fin­ger food on plat­ters and en­ter­tained by a DJ who kept them all danc­ing.

One of Lar’s old friends with whom he had lost con­tact in re­cent years trav­elled all the way from France to catch up with his old pal.

One of the high­lights of the night was a beau­ti­ful cake with pic­tures of the two boys scanned on to the top.
