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 !!
