Martin has a 40th birth­day to re­mem­ber

Wicklow People - - NEWS -

Martin Napier from Kil­coole cel­e­brated his 40th birth­day at the Royal Ho­tel in Bray last week­end with his fam­ily and friends.

Martin was joined by his par­ents Jackie and Josie, his sis­ter Mary and many rel­a­tives and friends for the oc­ca­sion.

A res­i­dent of Lower Green in Kil­coole, Martin works as a man­ager in Dunnes food store on Bray’s Quins­boro Road.

Around 30 of his col­leagues from the store at­tended the party, as did plenty of his friends from home. Some of his cousins came all the way from Cork for the cel­e­bra­tion, and an aunt and un­cle trav­elled from Gal­way to join cousins from Newtown and Kil­coole.

Ev­ery­one was look­ing for­ward to the party and it was Martin’s sis­ter Mary who took the lead in terms of the plan­ning.

The evening in­cluded a slideshow of pho­to­graphs of the birth­day boy over the years.

Martin said a few words to the gath­ered crowd, thank­ing ev­ery­one for com­ing along to mark the happy oc­ca­sion.

His ac­tual birth­day falls this week, so his fam­ily ex­pect to mark the mile­stone birth­day once again.

Martin had a fan­tas­tic night with plenty of chat­ting and danc­ing. He re­ceived lots of gen­er­ous gifts from ev­ery­one. The party in­cluded a bit of fin­ger food, and a DJ who en­sured the dance floor was full from start to fin­ish.

Martin blows out the can­dles on his cake.
