Shine On

We are sad to say that Anthony, the voice of Gala for many throughout the 2000’s, has passed away.
A larger than life figure, who threw himself into so many Gala events, he was well known to all visitors in Portaferry, during our Festival.
Anthony also hosted “Love on the Lough” on our festival radio station ferry fm.
