John Reilly picking litter

Retired classics teacher John Reilly MBE isn’t going to let the after-effects of FOUR battles with cancer stop him from doing his bit to keep Northern Ireland beautiful.

He has taken delivery of a custom-made trailer — complete with on-board toilet — so he can go litter-picking in places like the Mournes without worrying about being caught short.
