A number of retired colleagues have been in contact to pass on the sad news that Eddie Cassidy, ex White Watch McDonald Road, died in hospital following a heart attack at home. On a personal note I worked with Eddie at McRd for 5 yrs, you couldn't meet a nicer guy.

If we receive further information we will update everyone.

RIP Eddie

Update - 5th March:

Funeral details are as follows: 3pm Monday, 8th March at Seafield Crematorium. This will be family members only due to covid restrictions. Please note that the crematorium staff do not allow the public to enter the grounds or line the entrance for funerals. 

However, Richie Hall from the Scottish Fire Service has contacted us to say he has liaised with Eddie's family and they have requested that any ex-colleagues wishing to pay respects should meet and line up at the junction of Pirniefield Place and Leith Links. The hearse and family cars will pass at 2:30pm as they leave the family home en route to the crematorium.
