A pint in Madden’s is not classed as a romantic night for two, a Newry woman has told her husband of 12 years.
Eileen Fatspatrick, who has lived in Newry all her life, turned 40 on Friday, and was expecting a candlelit dinner for two at a classy Newry eatery.
Eileen told Newry Spud:
“It’s not every day you turn 40. I had visions of being whisked away in a taxi and wined and dined in the city. And maybe afterwards we’d stroll hand in hand along the canal, still gently shimmering in the setting sun.”
Instead he took me to fucking Madden’s for a pint, a local darts tournament and a walk down to Ken’s for a hot & spicy curry. I guess when it comes to romance, women are from Venus and men are from Newry”.
