Farewell Con

I bade farewell to my old acquaintance, the Reverend John McConnell (Con) Auld, MA, this afternoon, Tuesday, the 5th May, 2020, in his home town of Holywood, County Down.

Mourners assembled at High Street in the town, and the cort├Ęge made its way to Redburn cemetery.

A service to celebrate his life was conducted at Con's graveside by the Rev Noble McNeely, Minister Emeritus of 1st Holywood Presbyterian Church.

Con's memory lives on in his historical publications.

Every time I visit Portbraddan, County Antrim, I'll think of him.

A sad passing. One of the reasons I faded out of the East Belfast Historical Society was because I felt they treated him rather poorly on one occasion.
