Thank you Jerry and Bridie for always being there for me when I was growing up in Belturbet. I fondly remember as a very young child hanging out with you on Saturday nights at ‘the lawn’ pub. As regulars you had your own table and I felt very grown up tagging along.
Delighted you both attended my wedding in England in 2017.
Rest in peace together
Love from
