Bray People - - News -

CLAIRE O’CON­NOR, dressed in a stun­ning monochrome gown, was ren­dered speech­less when Westlife’s Nicky Byrne phoned her at her 21st birth­day party re­cently in the Royal Ho­tel.

Claire, who is from Rath­michael, was joined by her par­ents Mau­reen and John, her brother Christo­pher and sis­ters Ais­ling, Amy and Lucy. Her grand­fa­ther Jim McGet­ti­gan was also there on the night, as well as a host of aunts, un­cles, cousins and friends.

Claire’s aunt Cather­ine ar­ranged the phone call from Nicky, hav­ing met him at a func­tion and asked him to sur­prise the birth­day girl.

The bright 21-year-old at­tends a UK col­lege where she stud­ies bio­med­i­cine and is cur­rently in her third year there. A num­ber of her col­lege friends made the jour­ney from Eng­land to be with her on her mile­stone night.

A for­mer pupil of Loreto Dalkey, a num­ber of her old school­mates also con­verged on the Royal Ho­tel for the evening.

John spoke very elo­quently about his daugh­ter, while Claire thanked every­one for be­ing there, and thanked the staff for mak­ing her night a spe­cial one.
