There were plenty of celebrations in the Farmer's Kitchen recently when well known Wexford woman celebrated her 90th birthday.

Sheila Anglim from Trinity Street was joined by her large family as well as friends and neighbours to mark her special day.

The mother of Olive, Bobby and Dermot Sheila was the life and soul of the party the whole night long and her energy levels never showed any signs of flagging despite her milestone birthday.

Unfortunately son Dermot who lives in Australia couldn't attend the party but had send home special birthday greetings.

Sheila has seven grandchildren and five great grandchildren and loves nothing better than being surrounded by her family.

A band provided the music on the night and Shelia was no stranger to the dance floor as she partied the night away until the early hours of the morning.

Her daughter-in-law Betty had made the cake for the occasion and received great praise for her baking skills.

Sheila was over the moon with the celebration and extends a very special thanks to everyone who attended and helped make it such a special night.
