The shared love of music that brought Enda and Eleanor Joyce together over 50 years ago is still a bond that unites them today.
Enda and Eleanor, who live in Pinewood Estate, celebrated their golden wedding anniversary at the Dromhall Hotel last Saturday night with family and close friends.
Eleanor (nee Duff) from North Circular Road in Dublin and Enda from Salthill in Galway met in a famous Dublin traditional music bar, O’Donoghues of Merrion Row. The same night, Enda was playing a guitango which is a cross between a guitar and a banjo. They were introduced to each other by Ted Furey, father of the Furey clan.
