In memory of Denny Harries

doc00835520190227114159 001 1


Denny was born on the 29th May 1943 in Banbridge Hospital. He was the third of five children born to Will and Kathleen.

The family lived in School Terrace, Laurencetown and Denny attended St. Colman’s Bann P.S. Laurencetown and St. Patrick’s College, Banbridge.

When he finished school he went to work in Gilford Mill before becoming a labourer, a job which took him to many building sites across Northern Ireland.

Denny had many hobbies including shooting hunting and fishing. He was a keen motorbike rider and an ardent fan of Joey Dunlop.

But his true love was his beloved dogs. He won hundreds of trophies at dog shows all over Ireland.

One dog in particular who was the runt of the litter won the prestigious “Best in Show” at the famous dog show in Shane Castle.

His attendance at dogs shows led to him becoming an actor in a film entitled “Mad about Dog”, which was filmed during a dog show.

He appeared on television following this and the film can still be watched today on Amazon Prime.

He was also a follower of football and a fanatical Liverpool F.C. fan.

After suffering a serious head injury 12 years ago, Denny’s health went downhill.

After the loss of his beloved brother Reggie, he was never the same again and just before Christmas 2016 he went to Abbeyfield House in Banbridge.

While there Denny fell ill with cancer and had to move to Mountvale nursing home in Dromore where he died peacefully in his sleep at 2am on Tuesday.

Our sympathy to his nieces Tracey, Dana and Fiona, nephews Joe Marty, Louie and Jim and entire family circle and friends.
