Rosanna helps dad Chris mark 70th in Lon­don

Sunday Independent (Ireland) - Living - - FRONT PAGE -

Pre­sum­ably it was ‘The Lady In Green’ who greeted Chris de Burgh when he flew to Lon­don last week­end. An Aer Lin­gus air host­ess, sil­lies.

The trip to Lon­don was to cel­e­brate the singer’s 70th birth­day. It was marked with a big din­ner in Greek restau­rant Halepi in Le­in­ster Ter­race last Mon­day night at­tended by wife Di­ane, daugh­ter Rosanna and the rest of their fam­ily. (They all stayed in the Royal Gar­den Ho­tel in Kens­ing­ton.)

Did Chris, high on emo­tion, sing on the night? “There was no singing,” for­mer Miss World, Rosanna Dav­i­son, told me, “apart from us singing Happy Birth­day when his cake ar­rived! It was bril­liant to get the whole fam­ily to­gether to cel­e­brate his mile­stone birth­day. My dad is still young at heart and full of en­ergy. So he’s fully em­brac­ing turn­ing 70.”

Rosanna, for the record, is 34. Is she em­brac­ing that age, too? “I’m ab­so­lutely lov­ing my thir­ties,” says Rosanna, adding proudly that hus­band Wes­ley Quirke launched his new ven­ture last Fri­day: the Carl­ton Casino Club on O’con­nell Street. “It’s a so­phis­ti­cated art deco-style live gam­ing casino club with a poker par­lour in the heart of Dublin.” Say what you like about Rosanna Dav­i­son, but she doesn’t have a poker face.
