Happy 50th Ed­die


LAST Satur­day night saw an ex­o­dus of Kil­macanogue folk head for Rath­new to help Ed­die Byrne cel­e­brate his 50th birth­day (pic­tured right). De­spite liv­ing in Kil­macanogue for the past 20 years, the say­ing ‘You can take them out of Rath­new but you can­not take the Rath­new out of them’ ap­plied, so this party was al­ways go­ing to take place in his home­town. How­ever, Ed­die did make a spe­cial ef­fort to make sure the room was dec­o­rated in bal­loons of the colours of Rath­new and Kil­macanogue GAA Clubs so he kept ev­ery­one happy. ‘Our Ed­die’ is a pop­u­lar man in both com­mu­ni­ties and this was ev­i­dent by the turnout on the night. Both in sport and through his Mini Dig­ger busi­ness, where he has helped many a per­son out and al­ways been so rea­son­able to them, he is a very well-liked and re­spected man. Af­ter a few years in stor­age, Siobhan Har­vey even brought along her imag­i­nary air-gui­tar for the cel­e­bra­tions. Best wishes for the next 50 Ed­die comes from your wife Ann, son Thomas and all your fam­ily and friends.
