The Pope - My Fake Diary
Thursday, 10 May 2012
Not many people can claim former US president John F Kennedy, movie legends Grace Kelly, Boris Karloff and Roger Moore, supermodel Naomi Campbell and even myself as customers.
But Dublin sisters Mary and Terry Hewitt of Rosario Florists can.
The sisters pulled down the shutters on their florists in Glasnevin for the last time yesterday after more than four decades in business. Mary said: "We even got a note of thanks from the late Pope John Paul II".
When the sisters started the business in 1969 a dozen red roses cost the equivalent of €3.60 these days you would fork out upwards of €60 for the same bouquet.
May they both have a happy retirement.
