Martin and Clare Moroney celebrated their 60th Wedding Anniversary in Rosemount House Nursing Home, Gort earlier this month.

To mark their lifelong achievement of love, their family sent in a beautiful cake made by local baker Ann Marie Smullen and a bouquet of flowers from Gort Garden Centre & Florists.

Rosemount House Nursing Home Manager, Donal Walsh, presented them with a gift to honour the occasion on behalf of the residents and staff. They were presented with a framed photograph of the happy couple, complete with the lyrics of Clare’s favourite song, ‘Come Back Paddy Reilly to Ballyjamesduff’ and Martin’s favourite song, ‘My Lovely Rose of Clare’, surrounding their photo.

Martin is originally from Tulla, County Clare. His wife Clare is originally from Ballyjamesduff in Cavan. They first met in Dublin, in 1959 when they were working in the Belvedere Hotel in Dublin and as fate would have it, they started going out together a few months later.

Then in 1960, they moved to England and married over there on the 12th October of that year. They lived in England for 13 years and then decided to move back to Ireland in 1973. The decision came naturally, and the pair set about raising their family. Their children are; Bernadette, Gerard, Martin, Patricia, Roger, Clare & Tommy.

They couple share a deep love for music. Clare often joins in with the singalongs that take place in the nursing home. Martin adores his sports, being an avid fan of Munster Ruby and a proud supporter of his native Tulla. They celebrated their special day with their fellow residents, staff and management team.

Martin and Clare attribute their happy and successful marriage to always being calm with one another and this would be their advice to young, old and aspiring couples too.
