Congratulations to Brenda Patricia and Brian Gannon who celebrate their Diamond Wedding Anniversary on 5 October.

  They have three sons, Peter, Andrew, Patrick Michael, and one daughter, Catherine, in New Zealand with four grandchildren.  All the family send them love as well as their many friends.

  They were married at St Patrick’s on Saturday, 5 October, 1957, which was also Brenda’s birthday.  The celebrant was Fr B Collins.

  Looking back over the years as they prepared for their anniversary, Brenda and Brian remembered the new St Patrick’s church and attending the school, from 1936 onwards, where they were taught by the “brilliant” Sisters of Mercy.
