Val Del Rey

I wrote this for my staunchest supporter and greatest follower on twitter…. My gorgeous neice Sinead. She got married to her lovely Dave in Portugal in the resort of Val Del Rey. I have many happy memories of the time we all spent together in this fabulous place.   🙂

Val Del Rey

Such a lovely place to get wed

We went there for the wedding of Dave and Sinead

A week in June with family and friends

Laughs galore from beginning to end

Long sunny days, long drunken nights

We had a ball, and saw some sights

Having the craic,acting the fool

Playing volleyball in the swimming pool

Even tho’ I cant swim

I said ‘feck it’ and just jumped in


The hens party was such a hoot

Two busloads of women en route

To Montechero for karaoke and dance

The poor locals didn’t stand a chance




I got on the bucking bronco with Joan

Well! I wasn’t getting up on my own!

We finished the night as we usually do

Drinking vodka mojitos,schnapps and woo woos.


The day of the wedding was sunny and warm

Everybody was in brilliant form

Hairs were styled, nails were painted

Then it got so warm, granny nearly fainted


We went to the beach,where they were wed

Our dashing Dave and stunning Sinead

They took their vows, we all shed a tear

Then back to the venue for vodkas and beer.

We ate, sang and danced right through the night

The best mans speech made us howl with delight

We ate cake and watched fireworks,we danced on and on

Then drank lots more and we partied ’til dawn

A  fab week we had, everybody there knows

With my mad family and the diddy dongos

Great memories were made on this wedding day

With my wonderful family down in Val Del Rey.
