Bishop Andrew has joined the tributes to the founder of Foyle Hospice, Dr Tom McGinley, who died today.
“It is with great sadness that I learned, today, of the death of Dr Tom McGinley. I never had the pleasure or the privilege of meeting Tom or of getting to know him, but I certainly know of his achievements.
“Tom was a man of vision; more importantly, he was a man of action, who used his considerable gifts for the benefit of all. When he first conceived of the Foyle Hospice, many years ago, it seemed almost unimaginable. Now, it is an indispensable part of the fabric of this community.
“The Foyle Hospice is a wonderful and tangible monument to a great man, but the enduring gratitude of this whole community will prove an equally significant part of Dr McGinley’s towering legacy.
“My thoughts and prayers are with his family.”
