Addie Morrow RIP

A real gentleman with a hearty laugh and a giant in the Alliance party, Addie Morrow served as Alliance’s Deputy Leader, was a Castlereagh councillor between 1973 and 1989, and was also elected in 1982 to represent East Belfast in the Assembly.

Addie had a strong vision for peace-building and reconciliation, lived out both through his politics and his long time involvement in the Corrymeela Community. Living up in the East Belfast hills, he was a church elder in his local Presbyterian Church.

Aged 83, Addie’s death will be felt deeply throughout the Alliance Party as well as in his local community and by his wide family circle.

    I can’t say I knew Addie well – I didn’t – but I do remember him clearly, at the meeting which approved John Gilliland as having the party backing for the 2004 European Election, stating high concern about personal attacks that too many people entering politics have to deal with.

    It would be a great thing if we could change that.

  • Saw him for the first time in several years at the series of six talks on Remembering The Past on Antrim Road in Belfast last year. He attended every week with some members of his family.
    Old style Alliance, a man who like many members of his family contributed to the well being of this place.
    Rest in Peace.

    Like Bob Cooper, Addie convinced others such as myself in the 70s by his own convictions. I suppose that his Corrymeela work informed his work in politics. It’s great that Tim his son continues the Morrow tradition in Castlereagh Council. I like to think of him “up above” right now with John Morrow, another leader whom I admired.
