It was with great saddness that I learned of the death of Eugene Lambert this week.
Eugene was a real Monkstown legend and I remember fondly, regular trips to the Lambert Puppet Theatre as a child, where we were all spellbound by his imagination and talent. I note that the theatre will be closed this weekend as a mark of respect and will re-open on Saturday the 6th of March.
During the recent local elections, I called to the Lambert house and met with his wife, Mai. I offer her and her children my sincere condolences on Eugene’s death. Ní fheicimid a léithéid arís.
