Dr. George Irish

 

Wednesday, February 13, 2019.

I, like most Montserratians, am saddened at the passing of The Right Honourable, Dr. James Alfred George Irish, OE, son of the soil and National Icon. Whether known to some as Educator, social activist, trade unionist, politician, musician, artist, singer, orator, or Man of God, in each and every aspect he has left an indelible mark on us individually and collectively.

On behalf of the Government and People of Montserrat, I express my sincerest condolences to his wife and children, relatives and friends. As we mourn his loss may we hold on to and be comforted by our God, who Dr Irish himself chose to love, serve and represent as a Pastor and Man of God. May he rest in peace.
