The MLA, who represents Upper Bann, has been campaigning for the system to be changed in Northern Ireland to an opt-out process and hopes her draft legislation will be debated on the floor of the Assembly in Spring next year. The event, which was hosted by the Cystic Fibrosis Trust, was also attended by Rebecca Barr, from Dollingstown outside Lurgan, whose sister Charlene died while waiting for a double lung transplant. Today marks four years to the day since Charlene, who was born with Cystic Fibrosis, lost her battle at the age of 20 while on the transplant list.
Rebecca, 25, said she was honoured to speak at the event, telling the Mirror: I could not believe the event was on the day she died four years ago. It is a privilege because if this soft opt-out system had been in place she may have had a better opportunity to have the double lung transplant. Welsh Health Minister Mr Drakeford spoke at the event about his experiences getting his bill, which is now an act of the assembly, introduced in Wales and had some words of advice for those behind the move in Northern Ireland.
Much improved, David Jeffrey has seen United rise to fourth in the table and but for a few late goals conceded against Coleraine and Ards they would have been two places higher. They are also fresh from a stunning win over Linfield in th League Cup. Crusaders are champions and league leaders for a reason as they showed when they miraculously came from three goals down to win against Cliftonville in their last Premiership game two weeks ago.
They also came from behind to win away to Portadown in the League Cup in midweek. Despite this, Glenavon will be hoping that now is a good time to face the East Antrim side with Gary Hamilton’s men unbeaten in the last seven meetings. However, the addition of striker Martin Murray will give Carrick a lot more threat up front as they aim to get some points to move up the table.

Law Obituaries Richard Ferguson, QC Richard Ferguson, who died on July 26 aged 73, was one of the outstanding advocates at the Bar, appearing for the defence in a string of highly publicised trials. It formed a deadly combination with his extremely sharp legal mind, which could take points at vast speed. Ferguson’s numerous high-profile clients included two of the Birmingham Six; Ernest Saunders in the Guinness trial; the boxer Terry Marsh, acquitted of the attempted murder of the promoter Frank Warren; and the REM guitarist Peter Buck, acquitted of air rage on the ground that a medical mix-up had caused “non-insane automatism”.

Clarke This article is a survey of some of the materials of interest in the grave-yards of Magheralin, Moira, Donaghcloney and Tullylish parishes, which are included in the Craigavon area. It is apparent to anyone that the headstones in all old graveyards are gradually deteriorating or being actively destroyed. If this were happening to records on paper, there would be great activity to preserve or at least record these before destruction.
However, only in a few areas of Ireland is anything in this direction being done e. The comparison is not unreasonable since in many cases stones provide the sole records of births, marriages and deaths for a particular family. This, it must be said, is much less of a problem in north-west Down than in the Ards or Lecale, where most of the churches were small and the old registers were taken to the Four Courts, Dublin, and destroyed in However, here as elsewhere each parish has an average of 3 old graveyards, embracing various denominations and the Parish or Church of Ireland registers are far from complete records of all parishioners.
