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.
