CONGRATULATIONS to Lucy Bushe and Willie Carrick who celebrated important milestones recently. Glencormac’s own Lucy Bushe turned 80 years young and celebrated with a right old knees up in the Glencormac Inn. Our Lucy is one of the great characters of our community, always has a smile and greet- ing for everyone when she is out walking regularly on the road and we would like to wish her a very happy birthday and look forward to her 90th. A slightly younger but equally important birthday took place last week also in The Royal Hotel when Willie Carrick turned 60. Willie lives on the Dargle Road but is a Ballybawn Cottages man through and through and a huge crowd turned up on Saturday to celebrate this milestone. It was a surprise party for him but we all know Willies love and knowledge of cars and he became a bit suspicious when he saw some familiar number plates in the vicinity of the hotel. However, he was still overwhelmed when he entered the function room to be greeted by so many of his adoring family and many friends. Guests were treated to pictures of Willie’s 60 years (God that beard was bad Willie!) and the many cars Willie had over the years which must have keep the Fiat Motor Factory in business. A great night was had by all and happy 60th “Willie Lad”!
