HUNDREDS of well-wishers sent Manchester Irish woman Maggie O’Malley birthday greetings as she turned 105 over the weekend.
The great-grandmother, who was born on February 13, 1916, near Lahardane in Co. Mayo, first came to England in 1951 when she was 35 years old.
She made her home in Manchester, where she and her late husband raised a son and daughter – and she now boasts seven grandchildren and 14 great-grandchildren.
Maggie received more than 200 birthday comments on the Manchester Irish Facebook page over the weekend, including a personal video message from country star TR Dallas.
The impressive Irish woman previously told The Irish Post that the key to long life was enjoying a hot toddy before bed every day.
Many happy returns Maggie!
