THERE WAS plenty for the Duf­fin fam­ily from Alv­ina Brook to cel­e­brate when they gath­ered for a spe­cial fam­ily oc­ca­sion in the Gaelic Bar.

The party was or­gan­ised to cel­e­brate the 40th wed­ding an­niver­sary of Davy and Eileen Duf­fin, but the night also co­in­cided with their old­est son Gareth’s birth­day, and an an­nounce­ment by their daugh­ter Eleanor of her en­gage­ment to boyfriend Garry Lough­lin from Mullingar. The fam­ily was joined by about 80 guests.

Fin­ger food was pro­vided by the venue and the fam­ily ex­pressed their thanks to Liam Sin­nott and the staff for their hos­pi­tal­ity.

Davy and Eileen met at a dance in White’s Ho­tel in 1971 and mar­ried on Novem­ber 9, 1978. Their wed­ding re­cep­tion took place in the Tal­bot Ho­tel and they en­joyed a hon­ey­moon in Lon­don and Bris­tol. The cou­ple had four chil­dren: Gareth, David, Eleanor and Kieron.

Orig­i­nally from Trin­ity Street, Davy worked on Stena Line’s Ross­lare to Fish­guard route for 39 years as a chef, re­tir­ing in 2011. Eileen (nee Barnes), orig­i­nally from Cor­ish Park, worked in Jack­man’s Jeans be­fore mov­ing to Re­hab Care and fi­nally to the Clonard Church play-school.
