It’s with great sadness that I find myself sharing with readers the awful news that reader, contributor and expat, Michael Edwards, passed away a few weeks ago in Canada. He had been suffering from cancer for some time.
Michael was an ex-Clayhanger chap who went to live in Canada in the 1960s, and often mailed me, and sometimes contributed to the blog. The piece he wrote recalling his childhood in the village remains one of my favourite of all reader contributions.
Fellow Clonger man Chaz Mason was good mates with Michael, and has written a wonderful article in memorial on his Clayhanger Marsh Log.
I’m sure all readers will join with me in offering sincerest condolences to Michael’s family and friends, and to Chaz, who I know was very fond of him.
Rest in peace, old chap.
