    Brenda at Maisie's 100th Birthday

     

    Maisie Flood is celebrating a very special birthday today, born in 1913 making her 100 years old. Maisie, from Drimagh in Dublin is a huge Liverpool fan and herself & Brenda went to the Anfield Grounds in Liverpool Soccer Club in 2008 for the first time. She sang her favourite song for us, The Liverpool anthem, ‘You’ll Never Walk Alone. Maisie is not alone, last year, according to statistics from the President’s Office there was a total of 328 centenarians in Ireland each receiving a cheque for €2,540 and a signed letter from the president.
