With reference to Matt McLennan’s article in The Star on Wednesday, January 18 about the Jones family.
This family is by no means unique.
My own family can boast 10 siblings who are all OAPs with a combined total of 721 years, as you will see from the enclosed photograph.
My eldest brother Patrick was 80 in October.
I myself (Kevin) was 78 in October.
Next is my brother Jonny , who was 76 in April.
Then my sister Eileen, who was 75 in September .
Sister Louise was 73 in October.
My brother David was 71 in May.
My sister Catherine was 69 in April.
Brother Tony was 68 in June and brother Danny was 67 in October.
Last, but not least, was my sister Maureen , who was 64 in April.
Should we all survive this year that will be a combined total of 731.
Is this a record?
