Ro­mance blos­soms as John ask Sarah to be­come his wife

Bray People - - Social Scene -

RO­MANCE was truly in the air at the Es­planade on Satur­day night. As well as rais­ing thou­sands for the Ch­er­nobyl Chil­dren’s Project, the an­nual Ch­er­nobyl Valen­tine’s Ball had its first ever en­gage­ment.

A shriek of joy alerted the room to what had just hap­pened when Sarah Fitz­patrick from Old­court and John Ceev­ers from Manch­ester an­nounced the good news to their ta­ble of fam­ily and friends.

‘ My sis­ter’s en­gaged!’ shouted Louise shortly be­fore the news was an­nounced of­fi­cially to the room and a round of ap­plause rose up for the happy cou­ple.

John popped the ques­tion dis­creetly out­side the ball­room, be­fore slip- ping a beau­ti­ful di­a­mond ring on Sarah’s fin­ger when, much to his re­lief, she said yes!

Sarah works for Bank of Ire­land in Cabin­teely while John has his own com­pany, Au­to­time Ire­land.

The din­ner dance had opened ear­lier in the evening with a cham­pagne re­cep­tion, fol­lowed by a four-course meal and a num­ber of speeches. Speak­ers in­cluded Damien Meaney who has spear­headed the Ch­er­nobyl Cam­paign in Bray for sev­eral years.

There was a bumper raf­fle with some Valentin-re­lated prizes fea­tur­ing larger-than-life teddy bears. Dogg Ruff kept things go­ing well in to the night with a lively set of mu­sic.
