Paddy I was delighted to speak with you by phone while you were in hospital and had hoped to meet up when you left. Alas it was not to be. I fondly remember the times we spoke about opera in school and occasions we appeared as extras in Turandot in 1960
Rest In Peace and sing with the choirs above!

I am so sad to hear just now of Paddy’s death . To be honest I have been thinking of him a lot this week not knowing he had died . There must be a God . I had been in touch with our Australian cousin and was going to tell her to check it out .
Forever in my debt for the care he took in keeping the days of DGOS alive.
Dear Catherine take care and pain does ease with time . Blanaid
