Myles’s mile­stone

Bray People - - NEWS -

A great night was had by all at the Grand Ho­tel on Fri­day night last as fam­ily and friends of pop­u­lar Wick­low man Myles Ka­vanagh got to­gether to cel­e­brate his 60th birth­day.

The guests in­cluded sev­eral of Myles’s rel­a­tives from places as far apart as Dublin, Gal­way and Eng­land as well as his cousin Mau­reen Bridges, who came all the way from Bos­ton es­pe­cially for the oc­ca­sion.

Also present were sev­eral of Myles’s friends from Sun­beam House Ser­vices at Bal­lyraine, Ark­low, where Myles at­tends twice weekly. Music for the night was pro­vided by Myles’s friend, DJ Sam O’Con­nor from Ark­low. Dur­ing the night, when not show­ing his moves on the dance­floor, Myles was busy chat­ting with friends and rel­a­tives alike, and was in­un­dated with presents, re­flect­ing his many in­ter­ests in­clud­ing music, art and foot­ball.

Sto­ries and anec­dotes from Myles’s life flowed freely through­out the night, as trib­utes were paid to the man­ner in which he has coped with the var­i­ous chal­lenges he has had to face.

The high­light of the night for Myles came when his fam­ily pre­sented him with an all-ex­penses-paid trip to El­land Road to watch his beloved Leeds United play later this sea­son. Myles will also have the op­por­tu­nity to meet the play­ers and go on a tour of the ground. This will be his first visit to Leeds and­will ful­fil the am­bi­tion of a life­time.
