Ireland’s oldest working woman was celebrated on Friday when Mary Lafferty’s colleagues at Killybegs Community Hospital marked her birthday.

Mary had been selected Ireland’s oldest working woman last year in a national competition organised by TV3, and received her prize on the television programme, “Ireland AM”.

Mary helps to teach computers at the hospital, where she also leads other clients in a keep-fit class.

Mary celebrated nine decades on Friday with hospital staff and clients, enjoying a cake staff members organised. She was set for another celebration with family yesterday, the date of her actual birthday.
