Golden Jubilee Wedding Anniversary

Eddie & Mary Kenny of Greenlawn celebrated their 50th Wedding Anniversary on August 14th last and they recently got together with their family to mark the occasion. Eddie & Mary renewed their vows at Mass, which was celebrated by Fr Everard. This was followed by a celebration that was held in the Parish Centre, and a great evening carried on into the early hours of the following morning, with many of Eddie & Mary’s grandchildren providing the entertainment. We wish both Eddie & Mary many more years of health and happiness together!
