McGimpsey pays tribute to Sam McAughtry

Ulster Unionist Culture spokesperson Michael McGimpsey has expressed his sadness on hearing of the death of writer and broadcaster Sam McAughtry.

The South Belfast MLA said;

“I am very sad to learn that Sam McAughtry has passed away. Sam was a personal friend of many years and we worked together and with others in campaigning for peace, including as part of the Peace Train organisation.

“He was a proud son of Tiger’s Bay and never lost touch with his roots. The Northern Ireland Arts scene is a much poorer place today, and I extend my sympathies to his family circle and his many friends.”
