Casa San Paolo in Buġibba held its annual Festi Irħula, an event featuring traditional Maltese food and band marches. This typical village feast takes residents down memory lane, to a time when they just could not wait to celebrate their much-loved patron saint with friends and family. The CareMalta elderly home was decorated with streamers, balloons and feast banners. Gaetano d’Amico, president of the residents’ committee, helped with the decorations and organisation, recreating an authentic village feast atmosphere, complete with the sounds of church bells and fireworks.
