A very special occasion was doubly celebrated last Tuesday at Rathbeggan House, Co Meath. Hosting the opening meet for the Ward Union Staghounds at the lovely property proved a joy in fine weather with mulled wine and refreshments on hand for attendees. Enjoying their first hunt with the Ward Union were Clara and Charlotte Cully and if that wasn’t enough, yet more was to come with the celebration of birthday girls Mrs Maureen Brindley (94) and her granddaughter Clara (10) who share the same birthday.
