THE Brandon Hotel played host to a special occasion for Johnnie and Tina Wall on Saturday night…just as it did 50 years ago.

The couple from Ballinorig celebrated their 50th wedding anniversary at the hotel which was the venue for their big day on June 17, 1969.

“We had the reception here 50 years ago, where we¬†[the Kerry Blues] were the resident band at the time. It was a fantastic day, despite it being a wet, windy one,” said Johnnie, who has lived with Tina (nee McCarthy from Day Place) in Ballinorig for 49 of those 50 years.

They had four children, John, Kathleen, Mikey and Mary B and Johnnie said he has been blessed that he and Tina have enjoyed such a wonderful marriage.

The Wall and McCarthy families were out in force along with friends and neighbours for a fun night of food, song, memories and a few drinks. Scroll down for photos…
