Baby Lis all smiles on her first social outing

Celebrating her first big occasion last Saturday, Baby Lis, daughter of Hazel Flynn and Jonathan McCoy, was christened in St John’s Church.

Lis has a 3-year-old brother, Kai, and an 18-month-old sister, Elsie, who adore the new addition to the family and can’t wait for her to ‘get on her feet and join them playing’.

Lis’s mom, Hazel, is daughter of Norma Flynn and Tony Roche, and she grew up in Curraheen. Jonathan is son of Sarah McCoy and Mike Galvin who live in Ballyrickard.

Lis was born on October 6 last year and she is a beautiful, fun child who loved the attention she got last Saturday, giving everyone a big, broad smile.

The christening was held in St John’s Church and her godparents were Chris O’Sullivan, friend of Jonathan, and Tory Flynn, Hazel’s cousin.
