Bernie and Bertie mark diamond anniversary

The very well-known Tralee couple Bernie and Bertie Conway celebrated their 60th wedding anniversary, known as the diamond anniversary, on Sunday surrounded by family.

It was a fabulous day and the weather was perfect when the party loving couple and their guests went to Ballyroe Heights Hotel to enjoy lunch for their special celebration - and of course the day wouldn’t be complete without a gathering back at the Conway home in St Brendan’s Park later in the evening - a house that always has an open door not only for family but for neighbours and their children through the years.

Tom's back in Tralee for big birthday celebration

Tom McGiff returned to his adopted Tralee last weekend to celebrate his 60th birthday. Tom, who works in construction and trained as a plumber, lives between Dubai and Asia for the past ten years, but returns to Tralee regularly to see his family.

Tom is from Kildare and came to Tralee when he was 16 years old to work and Tralee has remained his base since.

He has two daughters, Amy and Kelly. Amy has three children with partner David Spring, they are Shonagh (12) Ally (6) and Myia (2).  Amy works in Spring’s Juice Bar in Manor. Kelly is working in London.
