A new year has started, let’s hope for a prolific set of opportunities to having called their demise first!

Sue Lyon,
Actor who played Lolita in the controversial film based on Vladimir Nabokov’s novel of the same name.


Someone said :
The Dead Thread is for death notices of real people in the public eye.

The following is allowed in the Dead Thread:

- obits, notices and personal reactions to the recent deaths of people in the public eye

The following is not allowed in the dead thread:
- deaths of fictional characters, or other jokey pretend deaths
- death notices for people who have closed their accounts on Gaire etc
- deaths of people known only to yourself on Gaire, such as your neighbour or your goldfish
- random rumours of celebrity deaths
- news of people taken ill

Thanks!

My dear boy, in 2013 the Dead thread was created by an admin (Wheelie Bin) in 2012, and Thomas himself copied the first reported death which had occured in 2012 and which had prompted... a certain Ozren to create a duplicate 2013 thread.
Thus it seems quite alright to use the reporting date / first awareness of the death rather than the date of the death itself. Especially given that usually the previous year’s thread gets locked before all deaths can be clocked.

Nobody actually famous has yet been reported as dying yet in 2013, but I wanted to start this thread...

So, with an announcement from the last day of 2012: Itealnd's oldest woman, Mary Kate Byrne, whol ived Maganey, Co Kildare, died 108

Very sad to hear of the death of Marian Finucane. 69 is pretty young to go these days and it seems it was sudden.

Great radio presenter with a warm and empathetic manner who made her interviewees feel completely at ease. May she rest in peace.

It was an entertainment show. It said so on the disclaimer.
You're being a bit harsh there.
