Omagh Gael, you are way too quick to post names, you realy need to edit that post. I'm not trying to score points but as I post only two have passed away. May they Rest in Peace.

I alologise if i have caused offence, it's just that I know the three fellas indirectly and wouldn't post up names unless I was sure of their identity.

Mournerambler needs to edit also.

Omagh Gael it's not offensive to us just that if a cousin or friend or whatever hadn't heard this baord is not where they would want to find out.

Deepest sympathy to the families.

RIP

just back from one of the young lads house, youngest of seven children and sixteen years of age. a very sad house.  thankfully the names have being taken down as they told me tonight that the third lad is still serious ill in hospital.

I really sincerely apologise for putting up those names, a rush of blood to my head, out of order.

Fair enough Omagh Gael, we all rush in and type stuff, before we think.

Allan Mc Clay of Galen died yesteray - a great man who has donated millions upon millions of his wealth to good causes, most notably QUB research facilities.



I watched a programme on him a couple of years ago and was very impressed by his attitude to life.

A couple of board members are employees so will have the black armbands on at work today. Gave over 20m to Queens for research over the years so fair play to him.

I just googled this. Seems this story about his death has been a rumour from away last year. Think it even has a page on Facebook with many followers.

Was in work every day up until his sickness before Christmas. He gave millions to charities but he also bought the company back a few years ago when the whole plant was about 3 months from closure with the loss of about a thousand jobs. Never showed an interest in selling to the highest bidder so there are a couple of thousand people were reasonably secure in their jobs.

Given McClay's net worth every penny of those millions he 'gave' away was tax deductable, except  by giving it to Queen's he gets his research and development done for him - handy way of getting something for nothing.

Shrewd businessman. Undoubtedly.

Great philanthropist? Pull the other one...
