Campbell Gardner – Deceased

Old Wesley has learned with sadness of the death of Campbell Gardner.  Campbell was our Club Bar Steward for a number of years during the 1970s/80s and later ran the gate at a time when All Ireland League matches attracted very large crowds.

We extend our sympathies to his sons, David and Andrew, daughter, Ruth and the rest of his family.  He will be sadly missed by his many friends in Old Wesley. Details of his funeral are shown below.
