CONGRATULATIONS to two well known locals who this weekend celebrate milestone birthdays. Kieran Doyle will be 40 years young and is hosting a party for his family and friends this Saturday night. Happy birthday ‘Doyler’ from your loving wife Yvonne (God she has a lot to put with!) and a special birthday wish to Daddy from Sinead and Michael as well as the extended O’Toole and Doyle families.
Also, Darren Anderton was famously known as ‘Sick Note’ while playing his football at Spurs due to his regular absence from injury but both Gaelic and Soccer colleagues in Kilmacanogue will recall our Doyler missing many games through injuries some of us never even heard of at the time.
It got so bad at one stage that the College of Surgeons were trying to get Kieran as a model case for the students. Then there was ‘Doylers Glencormac United Dream Team’ where he had wrote down his choice of the greatest ever team in the clubs history.
Unfortunately, this sheet fell out of his pocket at training one night and team mates took a look and there was Doyler in centre-mid and of course captain. (On a personal note Kieran, how come I wasn’t in your team?).
Joking a-side, you gave both teams great service and all your former team-mates wish you a very happy 40th.
Also this Saturday, Stephen Hourie will turn 30. Stephen was only a young boy when his family moved to Kilmacanogue to run the Last Stop Food Store. He moved off after this was sold to make way for the new Round- about but now has returned to live in Glencormac with his Fiancée Gwen and daughter Alanna who send him a special birthday wish. Congratulations to Ste also from the Hourie and Jeffares families.
Former team-mates say they would get you a drink to celebrate the event Stevie but they got the last one (and the one before that!) but wish you well for a happy 30th!
