Subject: RE: Obit: Mick McGarry (Ossanflags)
Yes, a sad day for all. He will be sorely missed on the Hull scene and further afield. A strong GMB union man even into retirement. He crewed on Barraclough's barges before joining the MN and sailing on the Wilson Line. A stalwart of the Hull folk scene since the 60s. At one point when the Council dropped out he almost single-handedly kept the Shanty Festival going. We will keep his memory alive by singing his songs.
RIP, old pal.(Ossonflags)
