Quarantined grandma celebrates 92nd birthday with a jig

self-isolating grandmother celebrated her 92nd birthday on April 8 with a song and dance at a party with two of her daughters – at a social distance, naturally. Dolores McEvoy recorded this video of 92-year-old Bridie Orgian celebrating in her home in Borris-in-Ossory, County Laois, Ireland. Dolores’s daughter Gearóidín McEvoy originally posted the video to Twitter. Dolores told Storyful she and her twin sister decided they wanted to surprise their mom with a visit and a cake. “We weren’t really surprised with her dancing as she loves music and a good party,” she said. “She’s looking forward to a proper celebration when all this isolation is over. Breda my twin sister and I are definitely the favorite children at the minute.” The video shows Bridie Orgian singing happy birthday to herself while dancing in the kitchen. Dolores’s daughter later posted a photo of Orgian blowing out her birthday candles. Credit: Dolores McEvoy via Storyful
