Long standing Fine Gael member from Carnaross, Paddy Dunne, celebrated
his 90th birthday last Wednesday 13th December 2017, reaching the age
of 90.

As part of the celebrations Meath West Fine Gael T.D. and Minister for
Housing and Urban Renewal Damien English organised a visit for Paddy
to both the Dáil and Government Buildings to mark the special day.

Paddy met with An Taoiseach Leo Varadkar T.D. along with Cllr. Sarah
Reilly, Cllr Joe Fox and members of Fine Gael Carnaross Branch – Frank
Mullan, Jim Nevin and Walter Waldron.

Later that night the Carnaross Branch of Fine Gael, and Kells District
Executive of Fine Gael met in the Carnaross Inn for speeches and
presentations to Paddy, who showed no signs of tiring of the long
day’s events and festivities.

Minister English stated: “Paddy is a member of Fine Gael in Carnaross
and Meath since 1954. He has been a loyal member of the Carnaross
branch of Fine Gael for sixty-three years. He first canvassed for the
party in the General Election of 1954 when Patrick Giles (elected),
Denis Farrelly and Patrick Dillon stood for Fine Gael. Paddy has an
impeccable record of canvassing in 18 General Elections, 11 Local
Elections, 8 European elections and 6 Presidential Elections.  We wish
him well on his 90th birthday, and hope that there are many more years
of good health and fruitful political activity ahead!”
