Walk in memory of Gerry Davis

A FORMER Loughbrickland man who taught in St Joseph’s PS in Poyntzpass will be remembered when a special walk he founded is relaunched in his honour this month.

Gerry Davis lived with Multiple Sclerosis and sadly passed away in 2002. But the towpath walk he started will be relaunched on August 26 by MS Society Newry.

The walk will begin at 12 noon from the car park opposite Sand’s Mill and will continue along the towpath via Jerrettspass on to Poyntzpass.

Refreshments will be available after at the Parochial House in Poyntzpass. To register (£10 per person or £20 per family) contact MS Society Newry on 028 3083 5657 or call Margaret O’Hare on 07969 989 070. Registration forms can also be picked up at Murphy’s Shop.
