Maisie Bosquette

The family of Maisie Bosquette gave her a surprise 80th birthday party at the Silver Eel Pub and restaurant near Strokestown, on Grange Lake in county Roscommon, Ireland. It was a great event and even the weather obliged with sun shine all day long. The invitations went out weeks earlier and everyone managed to keep the secret with Maisie never even suspecting there was to be a celebration for her. Great fun was had by all.

In the words of Maisie’s son in law Frank Costello referring to the photo (above right) “It may not be Riverdance, but it started the hooley off!
