“Congratulations. How was your special day?”
Ruth replied: “Well, when I say celebrate we didn’t because it was just before lockdown [on March 17].
“And you could feel that something was coming.”
She went on: “Also, Eamonn and I had booked to go away.
“Well not actually, when I say booked we had this trip planned because I always wanted to go to Pompei, look around and stay somewhere.
“I was also going to have a party in the summer. None of that happened.”
Ruth revealed her actual birth date falls on St Patrick’s Day and the Irish-owned restaurant they frequent is usually a good time for the couple.
