Some of us tend to do a quick search to see if anyone famous shares the same birthday as us.
Thursday 21st April sees Her Royal Highness, Queen Elizabeth II, celebrate her 90th birthday. She shares her special day with Ann Donnelly, a resident at Dunlarg Care Home in Keady. To celebrate the home will hold a bash rivalling that of Her Majesty’s to celebrate Ann’s 46th birthday in style.
Even though they were born on the same day, Ann has never met her birthday buddy but it fond of her. She has however met Princess Diana at the official opening of the Appleby Social Education Centre in Armagh. Ann recalls: “Princess Diana wore a lovely suit and loved very pretty. She was very friendly and spoke to everyone who attended the opening.”
Pat Graham, Home Manager said: “Ann is very inquisitive lady, who loves reading and research different countries around the world. She’s very hands on in the home, and helps to organise the activities that she and the other residents do. She’s always there to offer a helping hand to anyone in need.
“We all wish Ann many happy returns. We’re looking forward to holding this party in her honour, and we’ll celebrate the Queen’s 90th too.”
Everyone at Four Seasons wishes you many happy returns!
