|Lil and Mike cutting the cake|
Lil and Mick chose the music they would like to be played in the background and as the evening advanced their favourite Irish tunes came into their own. There was silence as our lovely songbird, Betty Lynch, began to sing “The Fields of Athenry” and then an enormous wave of voices joined in the choruses.
Finally Lil and Mick cut the cake (or cakes – one for their birthdays and one for their wedding anniversary). It was a truly lovely evening and a great tribute to two wonderful people.
