It was with heartfelt sorrow that everyone connected with Yn Chruinnaght heard that Roy Kennaugh had died suddenly recently. A really fine gentleman was Roy, full of bree and full of enthusiasm for any Manx topics and any inter-Celtic subjects at all. He had many friends, wherever he went, whoever met him. At this time, we cannot but offer our sympathy to Roy’s family and to everybody who was fortunate enough to know him.
