Snowy christenings for babies Margaret and Richie

The christenings of Margaret Christina Quilligan and Richie Stack Junior took place in Saint Mary’s Cathedral last Sunday against a backdrop of snow-covered Killarney mountains.

The two families will remember the christening day for the flurries of snowflakes as well as the milestone occasion for their children.

Congratulations to Amanda Buckley and James Quilligan, Forest Close, on the christening of their baby girl, Margaret Christina, by Fr Kieran O’Brien at the Cathedral.

Friends re-unite for Derry's surprise 50th celebration

Friendships stretching back the years to all stages of Derry Brosnan’s life were renewed at the Inn Between, Beaufort, last Saturday night at a surprise party held to mark Derry’s 50th birthday.

Derry’s wife, Nina, described the party as the ‘best-kept secret’. Derry, who lives in Beaufort Village, thought he was heading to town for a few quiet pints in Charlie Foley’s. A little diversion to his village local changed the course of events for the evening.
