https://www.facebook.com/246186455468831/posts/2528878907199563/?app=fblWe at Cullybackey and District Historical Society have been left deeply saddened by the news that renowned local musician John Kennedy passed away yesterday.

John was born in 1928 at Sandy Row, a few miles North of the village and it was here that he first picked up his love for music, listening to 'singings' at his Grandmother's hearth. This love developed further when he started work in the linen industry at age 14 and met Hughie Surgenor. Hughie taught him how to play the tin whistle and fife and the two of them, along with Wully Thompson and others, would practise their tunes in a small tin shed at Harperstown, right on the banks of the Maine. John then went on to not only teach the next generation of budding local musicians, helping to pass on skills and music that might otherwise have been lost, but also to play and teach about the history of the tradition far and wide, putting our wee village on the map with his skill.

John was our friend. He was a great supporter of the Society in our early days and was a regular visitor at our meetings until a decline in his health made it difficult for him to attend. He was not only a passionate musician but also a skilled storyteller. He would recall the tales of his youth and his memories of the people and traditions of this village with humor and affection to anyone who listened, keen that our history not be lost with the passing of time and generations.

He will be sadly missed.

The society wish to extend our sincerest condolences to John's family circle at this time.

We now have three businesses, in the village, registered with Women's Aid as Safe Places and just two more will allow us to have Cullybackey listed as a 'Safe Village.'

Wouldn't that be a great achievement??

So if you have a business or you work in the village and feel you would like to take part in making our village safer, then please let us know to book your place and join;
