60th Birth­day

Bray People - - KILMACANOGUE DIARY -

CON­GRAT­U­LA­TIONS to young Pat Philips who cel­e­brated turn­ing 60 with a sur­prise party held in the Es­planade Ho­tel in Bray last Satur­day night (pic­tured right). Pat's fam­ily or­gan­ised the whole thing be­hind his back (goes to show what else you don't know about Pat) and he was truly shocked to see so many gath­ered there to help him cel­e­brate. Many trav­elled across the water from Eng­land to be there and a great night was had by all. Of course the spe­cial guest was Pat's lit­tle Princess, daugh­ter Madi­son who as boss of the fam­ily, made sure her Daddy did not get too ex­cited by the whole event. Many of Pat's former Glen­cor­mac United team­mates from the ‘70s were there to join in the cel­e­bra­tions and his great buddy “Skinny Gam­mell” done a spe­cial ren­di­tion of Michael Jack­sons “Billy Jean” just for Pat. A slight damper was put on the night when some guests were asked to eat the birth­day cake which was in the form of his beloved Ar­se­nal FC and Pat's wife Joan got a slight scrape on the new “Carvela Shoes” but oth­er­wise, the night went very well. Any­one that knows Pat will be aware of what a true gen­tle­man he is and we as a com­mu­nity would like to wish him a very happy birth­day and best wishes for the next 60!
