That swine, Jake Carter, was packin’ ’em in over in Newtown, and his Mama’s Boy magnetism meant there wasn’t a dry Micra left in Greystones this morning…
The old lady exodus made for a quieter-than-normal East Coast Coffee Morning down at The Beach House, but, the sun was shining, the people were smiling, and no one was complaining.
Well, no one except for Eilo Vickers, of course. She feckin’ loves Nathan Carter – the musical equivalent of a stair lift – and would much rather have been hanging out with his younger brother this morning than with her boring Greystones Cancer Support buddies.
Still, she did get to meet the day’s furry mascot, Bonnie, and her loving owner, Emma T. As did Simon Harris, the lucky swine.
Just across the road, at Goldfish’s groovy new abode, Yarra Yarra, all the cool people were sunning themselves out front for their coffee morning, with the mighty Pippins Parkinson – never one to miss a house party – making the short trek over from Slievemore with her third-favourite son. All monies raised were going to the mighty Greystones Cancer Support, explained head honcho Gordon O’Neill, as he poured himself another morning cocktail.
Shout-out to Sabrina and the gang over at The Castle Inn this morning too, and all the posh kids down in Mount Usher, to name but two other rockin’ Wicklow get-togethers for local charities.
Maybe we can get Daniel O’Donnell’s third cousin, forcibly removed, to be Greystones’ guest of honour next year…?
