Pearse cel­e­brates his 75th in grand style with wife Joan

Bray People - - Out And About -

JUST five years since his wed­ding to Joan De­laneyMcMa­hon, Pearse McMa­hon cel­e­brated his 75th birth­day in the Martello last Fri­day night.

Over 70 peo­ple sur­prised, in­clud­ing his de­voted wife Joan, were there to sur­prise Pearse – who had been told he was at­tend­ing an event for their friend Se­na­tor Deirdre de Burca.

The pair, who had known each other for many years, met in Dublin when he was fore­man on the Tem­ple Bar Ho­tel. Pearse is from Ty­rone and now lives with his wife in Laud­erdale.

His brother Malachy and son Eu­gene, his part­ner An­neMarie and their good friend Bar­ney trav­elled to the party, as did Joan’s brother Brian, sis­ter-in-law Pat and niece Clare.

The cou­ple even went to the Koo af­ter­wards with Joan’s niece, where the younger peo­ple gave them an en­thu­si­as­tic wel­come. ‘It was a beau­ti­ful night and the mu­sic was bril­liant!’

Joan said that the two of them had a great night and have both had a won­der­ful five years. ‘They mis­took us for the grand­par­ents of the cou­ple when we went to make en­quiries at a ho­tel be­fore our wed­ding!’ She added, with a laugh, adding that she and Pearse are to­tal op­po­sites.

Joan is very in­volved within her com­mu­nity, while Pearse is a keen golfer and looking for­ward to a forth­com­ing golf­ing hol­i­day to Seville.
