A guide dog pup will be named after a bandswoman who was tragically killed in an accident as she left the field at a Twelfth demonstration in Killyleagh three years ago.

Mervyn Barr, whose young son Joshua (then nine years old) was injured in the same accident in which Deborah Jordan died, has been co-ordinating a fundraising effort in memory of the 30-year-old since the accident.

The two had been walking together out of the field with the rest of Cahard Flute Band, Saintfield, to start the return parade on July 12, 2009.
