Bewley’s of Grafton Road honoured record-breaking Denis Shields, an unbelievable 59 years after he purchased his very first coffee in 1962.
Bewley’s estimates that since then, he has actually appreciated over 30,000 mugs and tucked into countless cherry buns on his daily brows through.
“This feels like a walk through background, a minute that will certainly live with me till I go to the tomb,” said an emotional Denis, originally from a large farming household in Banagher, Co Offaly.
“The memories are effective. I have actually satisfied a lot of friends right here.”
On Saturday, more than 3 generations of the Shields family members shared a Bewley’s birthday cake– served by 3 generations of the Campbell household, Paddy, kid Cól and also grandson Felix, in Grafton Road.
