Celebrating their Diamond Wedding Anniversary this year are Dick and Florence Clarke of Castle Street Roscrea. Married in Ettagh Church in 1947, Dick and his new bride held a reception in the then Pathe Hotel Roscrea and their witnesses included Dick's brother Ed and Flo's sisters Olive and Adeline Wallace. Sixty years later the same wedding party gathered with friends and family to mark this milestone, particularly since the original group of 5 were still there hale and hearty. Sixty people gathered in the Racket Hall Hotel for a sumptuous lunch followed by a very pleasant afternoon sitting in the sun-soaked gardens( one of the few this summer)
Dick and Flo and their wedding group of 5 are wished every happiness and good wishes.
