A personal tribute to the late John Darbyshire by a long-standing friend and colleague, Elsie MacPherson
I first met John in 1957 when I joined the ‘School for the Deaf & Dumb’ on the Lisburn Road, Belfast. John was a popular member of staff and we all loved his robust sense of humour. He was a wonderful raconteur enjoying the laughter he produced as much as his listeners did.
