Westlife’s Nicky phones to wish Claire a happy birthday
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.
