Frédéric look­ing for host fam­ily

Wicklow People (Arklow) - - NEWS -

A French­man who once stayed in Ire­land over two con­sec­u­tive sum­mers is look­ing for his for­mer host fam­ily.

Frédéric Martin stayed in Bray some 34 years ago, and re­turned the fol­low­ing sum­mer.

Both vis­its were for around a month and he re­turned to the same fam­ily each time.

He and his fam­ily will be com­ing to Dublin for a hol­i­day next week. They will take in Bray for a visit dur­ing the trip. Fred­er­ick would love to once again meet An­thony and Deirdre O’Ke­effe.

He can’t re­mem­ber their ad­dress, but does re­call that Mr O’Ke­effe was a fire­fighter.

The fam­ily had two daugh­ters, he re­mem­ber, Alisha and Davinia.

Whether or not he man­ages to make con­tact with the fam­ily who wel­comed him in 1984 and 1985, Fred­er­ick will pay a visit to Bray dur­ing his hol­i­day.

He has been back to Ire­land in the in­ter­ven­ing years, he said, but just to the west and south coasts.

If any­one knows the fam­ily and can help but them in touch, con­tact Fred­er­ick on mar­tin­de­lam­
