In memory of Liam Campbell

In memory of Liam (Ted) Campbell

Funeral Liam Campbell

Liam Campbell born on the 27th November 1967 (53 years old) in Banbridge hospital.

He was the fifth son of a family of seven born to Jim and rose Campbell of Barrick Hill.

Liam was a much-loved brother of Jim, Damian, Pat, Colm, Alita and Gabriel and brother-in-law to Matt, Sharon and Dawn.

He was more affectionately known by everyone as “Ted”. Ted’s name came from Rose dressing him for school in a duffle coat and him having a likeness to Paddington Bear.

He attended Bann P.S. Laurencetown and later St. Patrick’s College, Banbridge.

When Liam left school, he went to work for the late and great Paddy Rogan with his good friends Martin and his brother the late Stephen Rogan,

This was a great friendship and family bond that stayed with him all his life, so much so that he was known as Mrs Rogan’s third and adopted son.

Liam’s call in life was always going to be Lorry Driving, something that was heavily influenced by his dad Jim and his uncle Eamon, known as the greatest lorry driver in Ireland. Although this title may have come from Eamon himself, Liam could also argue that he achieved it. He was well known for his knowledge of roads all over Ireland and was always available for directions, although a lot of these would have been short cuts down country roads only fit for tractors.

Liam and Theresa welcomed their son Liam Junior in 2002. They also welcomed their daughter Cliodhna in 2004. Along with Theresa came the package of inheriting 5 stepchildren, Patrick, Nadene, Shane, Cahal and Gemma. It is testament to Liam that all the children would go on to think the world of him. This is a role he took very seriously.

The Campbells thought Liam had met Theresa while out delivering nappies but this wasn’t the case. She had caught his eye in St. Patrick’s school but never met up until one night in the Coach in 2001.

Liam again stepped up to the role of Granda to his stepchildren’s’ children and was always messing about and teasing them and they loved it, as did Liam. Again, he found another strong family bond.

Liam was a much-loved member of Tullylish GAC, where Liam Junior and Cliodhna play.

He was on the Entertainments Committee as well as various internal club committees.

He enjoyed the Folk Nights in the Club and socialising with Eamon, Brian, John and the late Paul Donnelly. He sung with big Gene and paddy Barry. He played the mouth organ and was learning to play the accordian.

He also loved to join in with Eoin Barry on the uilleann pipes. This could have ranged from Grace to The Sash.

If there was a fundraiser he was the first to volunteer and took part in the club’s “Strictly Come Dancing” in 2017 with dance partner Kate Agnew and he certainly kept the crowd in laughs with his performance and the famous funky shirt.
