Blue plaque honour for Enniskillen musical virtuoso Joan Trimble

By Staff Reporter

A woman who made a significant contribution to Irish music is to be honoured with a plaque on the wall of the newspaper she was the proprietor of.

Joan Trimble was a composer, teacher, concert pianist and owner of the Impartial Reporter. The Ulster History Circle will commemorate her with a plaque at the paper's offices in Enniskillen.

Chris Spurr, chairman of the Ulster History Circle, said: "Joan Trimble made a highly significant contribution to Irish music as a performer, a composer and a teacher. Her broadcasting work ensured that she and her sister Valerie became well-known far beyond their native Ulster. The Ulster History Circle are delighted to commemorate Joan Trimble with a blue plaque."
