Martin Tierney RIP
Martin’s funeral will take place on Friday 31st December at 11am in South Queensferry Church with the burial at 12:30pm in the Cemetery and tea in the Scout Hall afterwards.
With heavy hearts, we have to report that Martin Tierney passed away suddenly on 3rd December.
A stalwart of the Blockheads Tent of Edinburgh, Martin was regularly on the tent’s winning team at Conventions as his knowledge of Laurel and Hardy and their films was exemplary. He loved Laurel and Hardy and he loved the Sons of the Desert.
We have fond memories also of him treating us to various songs at Conventions, in the Sons Entertain spot, a favourite being Donald, Where’s Your Trousers? He always attracted enthusiastic applause.
His talents stretched as far as playing Santa Claus each year at the Blockheads’ Christmas Party, handing out goodies and cheer to everyone present.
Gosh, we are all going to miss Martin. It was great to have him for a friend.
