Double surprise for John and Siobhan’s 50th birthdays

If there was a prize going for thoughtful families, the winners this week would be sister and brother, Emer and Jason Lyne, Arbutus Drive, who organised a set of surprises last weekend for the joint 50th birthday celebration of their parents, John and Siobhan.

John and Siobhan’s birthdays fell respectively on Monday and Tuesday this week. The couple went out for a meal in Murphy Browne’s Restaurant, High Street, last Saturday night with Emer and Jason to celebrate on the double.


Baby Chloe brings Blennerville and Killarney together

Blennerville, Rathmore and Killarney were united at the christening of Baby Chloe Cronin in Saint Brendan’s Church, Curraheen, and at the gathering of family and friends in the Killarney Avenue Hotel afterwards. And there was even a New Zealand connection at the special day in the life of the family.

Best wishes to Tim and Grace Cronin, Killarney, on the christening of their baby daughter who was born at University Hospital Kerry on May 12 and weighed 8lbs 6ozs. Chloe is a little sister for Jessica (2).
