Sur­prise party for Jimmy to mark 60th

Gorey Guardian - - NEWS -

Jimmy Finn of Wil­low Park was all set for a quiet evening to cel­e­brate his 60th birth­day, but his fam­ily and friends had other plans in mind.

They sur­prised him by invit­ing a much larger crowd of 150 to the Loch Gar­man Arms on Satur­day evening for a party to cel­e­brate the ma­jor mile­stone.

Also en­joy­ing pulling the wool over his eyes were wife Bernie, daugh­ter Amanda and son Aaron, who found it hard to keep the se­cret to them­selves.

‘He was bom­barded by ev­ery­one and in shock with all the peo­ple in the Loch Gar­man Arms,’ said Amanda. ‘He was over­whelmed and de­lighted to see ev­ery­one make such an ef­fort for him.’

The Loch Gar­man Arms put on a de­li­cious spread of food for the large crowd. Af­ter­wards, the fam­ily brought out a spe­cially made cake for Jimmy.

A great evening of chat and mu­si­cal en­ter­tain­ment by Dessie Doyle and Mick Red­mond was en­joyed by all. The birth­day cel­e­bra­tions con­tin­ued into the early hours of the morn­ing in Jimmy and Bernie’s house.

Jimmy was show­ered in gifts, cards, scratch cards and much more which he is very grate­ful for. He will en­joy his much needed rest af­ter the birth­day party.
