Sarah Deacy is one of two local women who are celebrating their 100th birthday this year. Both were honoured at Ballyvarry Post Office, where they have been longstanding customers. Katie Stenson from Ballyvary joined Mrs Deacy to receive bouquets of flowers to mark the milestone. The flowers were presented by Postmaster Martin Canning who has had the two ladies as customers for many years.Share
