Thread Name: Obit: songwriter/playwright Sam Starrett
Subject: RE: Obit: songwriter/playwright Sam Starrett
Sam Starrett was a very proud Drumahoe man and for years was involved in anything good happening in the Drumahoe area. It was only in the latter years of his life that Sam was widely recognised for the talents that he had.
Sam had written many ballads, poetry and songs about the everyday events and people of his beloved Drumahoe. Indeed some of these songs can still be heard sung at venues in the village.
Sam along with his friend Billy Hyndman formed Drumahoe Football Club in 1979 and the club is still in existance,with a few of Sam's friends still at the helm.
