Former Alliance leader laid to rest

Former Alliance Party leader Addie Morrow is today to be buried at 2.30pm in Gilnahirk Presbyterian Church, east Belfast.

He died at the age of 83, last week on March 30.

Alliance leader David Ford MLA said: "Addie was a founder member of Corrymeela and was active in Alliance from the very beginning of the Party.

"His whole life was a practical demonstration of his commitment to peace and reconciliation.

"He was a huge inspiration to many of us now in the leadership of the party.

"On behalf of everyone in Alliance, I would like to express my sympathies to his wife Nancy and his children and grandchildren."

Naomi Long MP said: "I was very saddened to hear of Addie's passing. He was a great servant to the people of east Belfast and worked tirelessly for the promotion of community relations.

"I would like to express my condolences to the whole Morrow family. I know he will be sorely missed by everybody in Alliance and further afield."

Addie served as a Councillor on Castlereagh Council and in the 1982 Assembly. He was also a founder member of Corrymeela - the Christian community which was established to promote reconciliation and peace.
