Happy 100th Birthday, Desmond!
We recently celebrated the 100th birthday of Desmond Cunningham, one of our many beloved residents in New Lodge Nursing Home. In addition to receiving the best wishes of our President, Mr Michael D Higgins, Desmond was congratulated by all his friends and carers throughout Bloomfield and beyond. He is pictured here with his daughter, Geraldine (R), and Claudia Musca (L), Person-in-Charge of New Lodge.
While Desmond is now a retired actor, having appeared in many theatre productions and movies including The Guns of Navarone, The Trials of Oscar Wilde and Dracula, he still never fails to impress today with his recitations – particularly with his rendition of the famous soliloquy of Richard III by Shakespeare.
We wish Desmond well and look forward to sharing his 101st birthday with him next year too!
