Former Fine Gael councillor Reggie Lawlor and his wife Liz got a surprise on Saturday when singing Garda Sean O’Mahoney, Patricia Berry¬† and others arrived on their doorstep in White Castle Lawns in Athy to wish them a happy 50th wedding anniversary.

“Are you coming to take him away? Are you going to arrest him,” joked Liz Lawlor when she saw Garda¬† Mahony and the squad car parked outside the door.

“Are you not sick of him” joked the guard. “I am yeah,” she replied.

When asked the secret of a long and happy marriage. “It’s a miracle.” joked Liz.

The couple originally had plans to mark the occasion with a trip away with their son and family who live in Limerick but that had to be cancelled because of the Covid 19 restrictions.

Instead Garda Mahony serened them with a rendition of Black is the Colour.

Reggie served on Athy Urban District Council and Kildare Co Council for many years.
