Margaret and Noel O'Brien recently marked 40 years together as a couple and to celebrate this special occasion, the pair went back to where it all began.
Culletons Bar of Kilrane was a significant venue for the festivities as it was there that the Hayestown residents first set eyes on each other. They joined with over 20 friends and family members, including sons John and Peter who organised the event.
'It was meant to be a surprise but we had to tell them. It would have been hard to get them there otherwise!' laughed Peter.
The pair had a great night in the bar, where they enjoyed drinks, music and stories from years gone by. They also marked the occasion with the all-important cake, complete with red icing in honour of their ruby wedding anniversary.
Margaret and Noel got married on October 11 1975. The pair have lived together in Wexford all of their lives where, for many years, Noel worked as a school caretaker.
