Canon Edgar Turner, Senior Registrar for the Diocese of Connor – and a huge fan of the Northern Ireland football team – was making the news today!
At 95, Canon Turner is set to turn out to support the NI team against Hungary at Windsor Park tonight – having just returned from the Faroe Islands where he travelled to watch the Northern Ireland players chalk up a 3-1 victory on Friday.
