Jail and Bail!
Denis McNeill, who was a well-known teacher and radio broadcaster, passed away in February. He was a long-standing friend and supporter of Caring Caretaker Davy Boyle’s charity fundraisers and, as a tribute to Denis, Davy has dedicated his final charity event to raising funds for the Northern Ireland Kidney Research Fund.
A wide range of people including Denis McNeill’s immediate family came forward to surrender themselves for ‘arrest’, all with the aim of raising ‘bail money’ which will be donated to Northern Ireland Kidney Research Fund.
Even the Borough’s first citizen, Mayor Ivor Wallace, took part and was arrested, saying:
“It’s not often you can say that you have been pleased to have been arrested but I was delighted to have been arrested for Davy Boyle’s Jail and Bail in memory of his great friend, Denis McNeill.
