Offering his congratulations, the Mayor said: “I hope Moira enjoyed her special day.

“It was a privilege to meet her and be a part of her celebrations.

“These coins have been created as part of our NI 100 programme as a tribute to our oldest residents, marking their contribution to the Borough over the past century.

“I’m grateful to Moira and her family for taking part and affording me such a warm welcome and I wish her continued happiness and good health.”
