Home » Library » The Athenry Journal » Record

Pat McNamara of Árd Aoibhinn Athenry celebrated his 60th birthday and his retirement with a wonderful party in The Newpark Hotel on Saturday the 11th May.

Pat also had an official farewell / retirement in N.U.I.G recently when he retired from his position in the Biochemistry Department where he served for 23 years.

Shiny Limousine

Pat and his wife Noreen received a wonderful surprise when their neighbours from Árd Aoibhinn organised to have them both collected from their home in a chauffeur driven stretch limousine and driven to the Newpark Hotel, where they were greeted by their family, friends, neighbours, relatives, and former colleagues. Everybody enjoyed themselves dancing to the music of San Atone into the early hours of the morning.
