On Monday we had to bid a sad farewell to one of our longest members of the group John Conway. The staff at the Brockagh Centre would like to offer their sincerest deepest condolences to Betty and all the Conway family on the passing of John. John was an active member of the Active Retirement group where he served on the committee with Betty. He was a true gent, much loved character and always made time for everyone. We will miss him from the group and the centre. Ar dheis De go raibh a anam.
