Michael celebrates milestone 80th
There were plenty of people to raise a toast ‘fore’ Michael Gleeson as he celebrated his 80th birthday in Wicklow Golf Club on Friday night.
A large crowd gathered to pass on their well-wishes, mostly made up of family, friends and neighbours. Michael is also an avid Bridge and 45 Cards players and members of the clubs he plays with were all present.
Michael is originally from Thurles but has lived in Wicklow for some time now and has been married to Annette for 55 years. Two weeks prior to his Wicklow bash, Michael also held a celebration in Thurles.
He used to work as a postman in the Garden County before taking on a position working for a Government Department.
Also in attendance at Wicklow Golf Club were Michael and Annette’s son and daughter Brian and Dara. His grandchildren - Matt, Sara and Maddie - presented Michael with a special present on behalf of the family.
His neighbour, Margaret O’Donoghue, also made a special birthday cake for the occasion which was presented to Michael.
