POPULAR local politician, Sam Locke, got a shock on Friday night when he went into The Slieve Mish Bar to be greeted by cheers and flashing cameras.

The occasion was a surprise party to mark the Tralee Municipal District Councillor’s 60th birthday and he hadn’t a clue it was planned as his birthday was two weeks previous on August 31.

His wife Annie persuaded him to come out on the pretence of attending a party for a friend of his, so despite suffering from a flu, Sam made his way to the Boherbee pub and looked visibly shocked when the cheers went up as he entered.

He was very appreciative of the efforts of course and enjoyed a great night with the many friends and family members attending.

There was also a special cake made by Lisa O’Shea in the shape of a salmon as Sam has a great grá for fishing. A fantastic night then to mark a milestone year for Sam. Scroll down for photos…
