Armagh man remembered in song with charity CD

Paddy Nugent died with Covid-19 in December last year

AN Armagh man who died from Covid-19 last Christmas has been remembered in song by his brother while raising money for charities.

Paddy Nugent, who worked for 40 years for the Ambulance Service, lost his battle with the virus on December 27.

As a young man he played with his brothers in their band The Models and his death sparked sibling Willie to write the song Until We Meet Again, in tribute to all those who have died from coronavirus.

It was recorded on a CD with another one of his songs, The Place Where I Was Born, about his native Armagh.

Willie Nugent wrote a song in memory of his brother and all victims of Covid-19

All proceeds from its sale are being divided between the Friends of the Cancer Centre at Belfast City Hospital, the Royal Belfast Hospital for Sick Children and Guide Dogs for the Blind.

Mr Nugent, who has raised more than £1m for charities over the years, also plans to release a third children's Christmas book next month in a further fundraising venture.
