Kathleen’s 104th birthday party a happy occasion
KATHLEEN Mustard had a fantastic party at Cairnhill Nursing Home last Friday, to celebrate her 104th birthday.
Pamela Moran, activities coordinator, organised the wonderful event. Kathleen has had a rich history. She has lived through two world wars, as well as the Easter Rising, and was born the year of the Titanic.
She lived most of her life on Upper Dar- gle Road with two of her sisters. She was one of five siblings. Kathleen always loved to go to dances at the Arcadia in Bray as well as up at The Scalp.
She went to St Paul’s School on Herbert Road.
She also worshipped there, and later in Christ Church.
Pamela said that the party was great fun, and Kathleen thoroughly enjoyed herself.
Her nice and nephews, great-nieces and nephews, and even her great-great nieces were all there to mark the happy occasion, as was her friend and former home-help Josie Fagan.
Santa Brika who works in the kitchens at Cairnhill made her a lovely cake and Kathleen was delighted to blow out the candles.
