Isa, who is originally from the Bushmills Road in Coleraine, is pre-deceased by her twin sister Rita who passed away ten years ago.

Isa has lived in Clairville Residential Home for the past 13 years.

Jean Jefferson said: “As long as Isa has a string of jewellery around her neck, a bangle on each hand and a brooch then she is happy.

“And she loves Tayto Cheese & Onion crisps and would have a bag every day of the year!”

Speaking after meeting with Isa, Causeway Coast & Glens Mayor Sean Bateson, said: “It was an honour for me to have this opportunity to offer my best wishes to Isa on this very happy day.

“She is clearly much-loved by all those who know her, and I was delighted to play a part in her birthday celebrations.

“The staff at Clairville deserve recognition for the daily care and attention they show to Isa and I would like to wish her continued health and happiness in her life.”
