  1. I met PA for the forst time in the mid 90’s when as a police trainer I arranged for him to come into the police college in Belfast and help student officers undertsnad lgbt issues and answer any of their questions. Despite the fact the police had at times persecuted him, he was generous, pragmatic and deeply committed to this process. Later on he was the one of the people I turned to, when setting up the gay Police Association and coming out at work. He will be missed and made a huge contribution.

      These kind of people are great. We for sure need such a police association in Greece too!!!

    RIP you will be truly missed. We need more people like him fighting for the right to marry, adopt children and to right to donate blood!

    We need more LGBT people, straight allies, small businesses and corporations supporting our rights and freedoms!

    The far-right and religious Christian or Catholic Kiddy-Fiddlers in Robes Taliban are slowly loosing this battle!

    Bigots are just obstructionist bastards at every turn – because they have nothing better else to do when there mostly unemployed and are obsessed with gay sex so much, because they are lonely and waiting in public toilets for conservative cock all over the country!

      Wasn’t his Funeral Mass at Dungiven church (Catholic)?

      Therefore, wasn’t he Catholic?

  3. RIP. PA, I will always be in your debt for the many times you stood up for my rights and the rights of all LGBT people in Northern Ireland. Thank you
