Shimna celebrates the life of Gordon Wilson

On Wednesday evening, we celebrated the life of Gordon Wilson with the inaugural lecture in his name. Our guest speaker was Martin Tierney. His talk, ‘From Fear to Hope: the Kindness of Strangers’ struck a deep chord with the audience, capturing the essence of Gordon Wilson’s quest for peace and reconciliation and the principles which underpin the movement for integrated education in Northern Ireland.


We were delighted to joined by Julie-Ann, his daughter, and her husband John. Thank you to everyone who turned out on a chilly evening. It really was a special event
