CONGRATULATIONS to Elsie Hopkins who celebrated turning 80 years young recently. Our Elsie's birthday should have got a mention last week but sadly she lost her beloved brother Al and birthday wishes pale into insignificance at these sad times. However, Elsie is a great character loved by us all and friends wanted to send her their very best wishes. Another birthday took place (in secret) on the Glencap Road recently when young Greg “Ted” O'Donnell turned 50. For some unknown reason, Greg wanted to keep this event low profile and was happy with his “Just for Men” Hair Care Product vouchers but his buddies wanted to wish the man we adopted from the Kingdom a very happy birthday through the Kilmacanogue Diary and remind him that we all might get a decent night out for the 60th !!
