Noreen Hill Dies

One of the quiet heroes of Northern Ireland died today. Noreen Hill was the widow of Ronnie Hill the headmaster of Enniskillen High School who spent 13 years in a coma following the Remembrance Day bombing. She bought a nursing home in Hollywood where she cared for him until his death in 2000. Here is the Impartial Reporter report from his funeral. As Mrs. Hill said in a previous interview: “I used to have a dream that he was walking about.” I firmly believe that her dream in now a reality in heaven.

Update: There is a very nice and moving tribute to Mrs. Hill in the Newsletter here.
