Brendan Bowyer visit to Annaduff in Leitrim remembered

A Leitrim man is paying tribute to the generous and down-to-earth nature of Brendan Bowyer on a special visit to the county in recent years.

John Flynn was part of a small committee who organised a 40th anniversary event in Annaduff in Leitrim in 2015 to mark the tragic death of Tom Dunphy who been killed there in 1975 on the way to a festival in Donegal.

Tom Dunphy was a member of the Big 8 band for several years and was a friend of Brendan Bowyer during that time until his death in 1975 in the car crash at Annaduff.

John Flynn said local people and the committee were delighted when Brendan Bowyer agreed to attend the event in 2015.
