Margaret Thorpe 1919 – 2012
We were all saddened when we lost our dear friend and President of our Society, Margaret Thorpe. Margaret served as President of the Society for 18 years, and her contribution over her lifetime membership was invaluable to us all. Her popularity extended far beyond Swords, as she warmly welcomed so many of our neighbouring Societies to our Annual Show every year. She will be sadly missed by us all, but will be remembered with great fondness. May she rest in peace.
Mary Lowndes RIP
We were all saddened by the loss of our Chairperson Mary Lowndes on 5th February last year. Mary was a lifetime member of the Fingal Horticultural Society and along with her late Husband Joe, made a valued contribution to our Committee and Society over many years. She had outstanding exhibits in many sections, not least the baking, for which she regularly won trophies in Swords and other North Dublin Shows. She will be dearly missed by us all. May she rest in peace.
