‘We’ve lost a braw fechter for Scotland’: In memory of Ivor Birnie

OUR mutual friend Stuart McHardy could not have put it better when he said that “we lost a braw fechter for Scotland in Ivor Birnie”, when Ivor saw his final Hogmanay, leaving this world just after the 2022 bells. Ivor’s brother Stewart had died in 2015, so he leaves the remaining three of his five siblings, Anne, June and Ron. He was remembered this week at a post-pandemic “cheeky wee glass” in Wilkies Bar.
