The Knight of Glin


I had determined never to have pictures of people on this blog but I am making an exception – Desmond Fitzgerald, the Knight of Glin has died.  The photograph shows Desmond, Thalita Getty and Mariga Guinness, all stylish, not only in appearance, but in their depths.

The Knight was handsome, erudite, funny, urbane and sophisticated, not unlikely to take offence but he was always a forgiving, constant and loyal friend.  The 29th  Knight, the most romantic of all titles will cease to exist.  He will be missed.
