All of the above fun was overshadowed by the death of one of our stalwart members Margaret Ryan who finally succumbed to the illness she had fought with great courage and dignity for a number of years. To her husband Jimmy, her family and friends we send our sympathy at this distressing time. May she rest in peace.
