Sad news, our Paddy

We have just heard the sad news of the passing, at 103 years of age,of our dear friend Paddy McEvoy from St. Pauls.

He was a great guide to us as kiddos, always there with a joke, always getting us home early. No more the bike , no more the black berret.

Thanks Paddy, thanks for the support, the laughs and so many great memories.
