I know quite a few of my extended family view this blog from time to time - many came to celebrate Dad's 80th Birthday last Sunday when we had a birthday party for him at my house. It was great to see so many of my O'Loughlin-related Aunts, Uncles, and cousins come to mark this fantastic occasion. Below are some photos from the party. The first few were taken at Dad's beloved Ballingate outside his house on his actual birthday (31st March), the remainder are from the party the following Sunday (3rd April).
Dad was in great form and is a wonderful advertisement for an active, healthy, and alert 80 year old man. He enjoyed the occasion very much, though he will have a tough job getting through all the whiskey he received as a present! I may need to give him a hand with this whiskey lake!
Happy Birthday Dad - long life and happiness to you.
