With enormous sadness and regret, I announce the death of Dennis Ward, Meadow Man and late of Carlingford Park.
The buildings on the hill are of the old Workhouse, functioning then (1950s) as the town hospital
Before that he was one of the constant companions of whom much is told in these pages, for indeed Dennis grew up at 4 Slieve Gullion Road, while your editor lived at number 20.
Dennis was also a great Shamrocks stalwart and indeed introduced me and many other Meadow youths to the great sport of hurling. He found it easy, for example, to whack a ball with his slithar the full length of the Green above – which was outside his front door.
Dennis also recounted some childhood stories here for my readers.
May the sod lie lightly.
