Three generations of the Poff family from Lohercannon came together last Saturday to mark the birth of new grandson Harry, the 40th birthday of Caroline Poff and the 65th birthday of her mom Kathleen.
Kathleen and George Poff really had plenty to celebrate and it was a very joyous and special weekend with all the family coming together. Along with Kathleen’s birthday, which was in October, she also marked her retirement from the Bon Secours hospital. Kathleen and George have five children, which include Caroline, Brendan, Denise, Deirdre and Liam.
Dad George Poff is well known and started Poff Motors 38 years ago from the back of his home in Lohercannon - the business expanded over the years and now George has taken a step back as son Liam and his wife Sharon run the business on the Dingle Road.
Golden couple Eileen and Michael Cahill from Ballyheigue celebrated their 50th wedding anniversary with family at Kate Browne’s Restaurant in Ardfert on October 25.
Eileen and Michael met in 1966 while out dancing in the Crown Bar in Cricklewood in London, a well-known meeting place for the Irish. Eileen was Casey from Ballyheigue and Michael was a Meath man.
After sealing their future together, they came back to Ireland and settled in Ballyheigue.
They held their wedding reception in the Meadowlands Hotel on September 9, 1969. The couple have seven children and twelve grandchildren.
