Visitors From The Past

We recently had a guest stay who had stayed with us during the 1970's.  The room rate then that he paid was £1.40!  He talked of a Captain Reed who stayed three days here at the hotel and didn't leave for 5 years. He and his dog Isla become long term residents here at the hotel staying in Room 7.  This guest from the 1970's hasn't been at the hotel in over 40 years.  Long before on line shopping, this gentleman would bring the latest fashion to the ladies and gentlemen of irvinestown.  Forty years on this guest was delighted to see that Mahons is still going strong and has as warm a welcome now as did 40 years ago.  And the name of this gentleman Mr Clifford McWilliams, a true gent with a great memory.
