Mon, September 20, 2021

The Mayor of Causeway Coast and Glens Borough Council has expressed special birthday wishes to one of Ballymoney’s oldest residents.

Councillor Richard Holmes visited Maisie Allison ahead of her 103rd birthday which she celebrated on Sunday 19th September 2021.

Originally from Glasgow, Maisie was born in 1918, and is now a much-loved resident at Abbeyfield House in Ballymoney.

The Mayor said: “I want to offer my very best wishes to Maisie on this special occasion as she marks her momentous birthday. Such a wonderfully entertaining lady, it was fantastic to hear about her life, her time spent in the Army and her enjoyment of horse racing, greyhounds and football.

"Her energy and spirit are a terrific inspiration to those around her and I’m not surprised the staff at Abbeyfield call her ‘amazing Maisie’. It was an honour for me to be a part of her celebrations and I hope she continues to enjoy a healthy and happy life surrounded by her family and friends.”
