A friend who now finds the sad message on internet.
A friend with whom Clare traveled around Ireland and the continent for several years, so long ago.
I often thought back to her friendship and openness, and that’s how I found the message.
I am deeply moved.

Some of my happiest times at Loreto Omagh were spent in Clare’s company! Trips to Lea Mis in Dublin, Neil Diamond, Kenny Rogers and the Irish Coffee at start of Christmas Holiday followed by more Craic in McElroys! Such a kind and happy lady who always had time for everyone. May she rest in peace. ELMA

I loved Ms McBride, she taught me PE at the Grammar , I loved her even more because she never forced me to do PE when I didn’t want to, which was most weeks 😉. I’m so sorry for your loss, a great woman.
