IT was a festive season to remember for a Clanabogan couple who received a very special gift on Christmas morning – the arrival of their first child, a beautiful baby boy.
Baby Senán was delivered at 1.47am and was the first baby born in South West Acute Hospital on Christmas Day.
After waiting an extra nine days to make his first appearance, Senán was “was well worth the wait” and has given his parents Shaunéen and PJ McDaid a Christmas they’ll never
“It was the best Christmas present we could ever have wished for, he has changed our world forever,” gushed proud mother, Shaunéen.
“The name Senán means ‘brightness’ and he really is the brightness in our lives,” she added. The little bundle of joy weighed a healthy 9lbs 1oz, and his parents are overjoyed with the new addition to their family.
Senán’s arrival couldn’t have been any more perfect as he now joins a list of consecutive family birthdays over the Christmas season.
His grandfather celebrates his birthday on December 23, his granny on December 24 and uncle on December 26.
The McDaids returned home on Boxing Day and are now getting well settled into their new life as a family of three!
