Tony Waldron has Died

Tony Waldron has died. Most of you who read my blog have never met him. He lived most of his life in and around Athenry in County Galway. In his early life he spent some time in England, but his work-life was mostly on the railways. And he was a hard and skillful worker. He was married to Marie, and they have four children.
Tony was my first cousin on my mother’s side.
