Gilda O'Neill 1951 - 2010

Social historian, broadcaster, novelist and campaigner, Gilda O'Neill was a beautiful, intelligent woman and a most generous friend.  We loved her from the moment her head came round our door.  In the days before acclaim and queues, Gilda turned up with journalists who had come from Jerusalem to interview her, and with typical kindness donated them to us.  She never looked down on anyone, she stood back to give others the limelight, she  was utterly honest in her relations with people and in her work.  We admired and loved her, and we miss her.
