Margaret, who with her late husband Patrick raised two sons and three daughters, is a grandmother to 14 and great-grandmother to five, many of whom joined her at her home last Tuesday evening for a special evening of celebration.
Local councillor Billy Connelly was also on hand to offer his congratulations to Margaret, who also welcomed parish priest Fr Pat O’Brien to the party at her home in Abbeytown.
