Nance’s super cakes are winners

by Jimmy Rhatigan

IT IS odds on that a baby son of Kilkenny will be a Liverpool supporter in the English soccer Premiership.

For the woman who baked two beautiful iced cakes for his christening eats, drinks and lives for the kings of Merseyside soccer.

Ann Byrne of Collins Park, Callan is acknowledged as the Queen of Cakes in her native town.

For a lifetime she has been the go to for the finest of confectionary for births, birthdays, weddings and christenings.

Naturally it was Ann, fondly Nance who supplied the tasties for the christening of baby Noah Byrne, a two-year-old member of a proud Byrne Clan.


There wasn’t a mention of soccer on the icing on what proved to be delightfully tasty cakes.

But as is well known, Nance, proud mother of Shane and aunt of the baby’s mum Rachel has for a lifetime been a supporter of the Reds.

Noah was baptized by Fr Dan Carroll in St John O’Loughlin Memorial Church followed by a reception for 60 in the Club House Hotel, Patrick Street.

There were thumbs up for the happy baker from the lick-lickin’ guests, hear me.
