With deep sadness but also with many fond memories, I record the passing of a great childhood companion Brian Hayes, formerly of Killeavey Road.
Brian was the only one of my childhood Meadow companions to make it to Queens with me in the late 1960s. He was enormously popular there – as everywhere. He features in many of my Meadow Memories – anonymously – as I had no recent contact with him to get his permission to use his name.
Brian suffered – most bravely – from cancer for many years prior to his demise.
