I measc na cainteoirí eile ar an lá bhí mac Clive, Owen Dutton, a labhair le bród ar athar a mhunlú athghiniúint bailte agus cathracha go náisiúnta i Sasan agus go idirnáisiúnta ach a bhí freamhaithe i dtuaisceart Shasan an áit arbh as dó agus arbh ansa leis thar áit ar bith eile ar domhán .


Thosaigh Seán a oráid ómóis do Clive i nGaeilge a rá:


“A dhaoine uaisle, is onóir agus cúis áthais dom a bheith anseo inniu le saol agus oidhreacht mo cara Clive Dutton a cheileirú agus a chur i bhur láthair.”


Agus é a rá gur seans gurb é sin an céad uair a labharadh Gaeilge san eaglas seo atá ar an cheann is fad bunaithe i Sasan, thug sé cuireadh den scaifte ollmhór a bhí i láthair ‘Barróg Mór Clive Dutton’ a thabhairt dá chéíle i gcuimhne air Clive féin.


Ag druidim a chuid cainte dúirt sé:


“The full legacy of his contributions are yet to be revealed, but he has already succeeded in taking cultural difference out of the negative realm of confrontation and transformed it into an affirmation of tolerant pluralism, catalysing and releasing tremendous human and economic creativity. Not bad for a lad from the Black Country.”

I ráiteas a léamh thar cheann Aire Cultúrtha Caral Ní Chuilín, nach raibh ábalta bheith I láthair duradh:


“The Gaeltacht Quarter has lost a great friend and supporter.  Clive’s vision, passion and enthusiasm for place making to improve the quality of lives for people in West Belfast and their communities inspired and energised all of those he spoke with.  I remember him with admiration and fondness and will continue to do all I can do realise the Vision for the Gaeltacht Quarter he helped to create.”

It was an honour and a privilege for Forbairt Feirste Chair, Sean Mitchell, to have been asked to deliver one of the main orations at Southwark Cathedral, the Church of Saint Saviour and St Mary Overie, headquarters of the Anglican Diocese of Southwark, London, on the occasion of the Memorial Service for Clive Dutton OBE who passed away on June 6th.


Canon Michael Rawson, Sub Dean and Canon Pastor of the Cathedral conducted the service, which was held on June 30th and which opened with a beautiful rendition of Schubert’s Impromptu Opus 90, No 3 performed by Di Xiao, a close friend of Clive’s Widow Kelly Wu. See https://youtu.be/w_z9oSn-eIM .


Among the other speakers at the service was Clive’s son, Owen, who spoke with pride of a father who shaped towns and cities on a national level in England and internationally but who remained rooted in his beloved North of England.


Seán’s tribute to Clive began in Gaelic:


“A dhaoine uaisle, is onóir agus cúis áthais dom a bheith anseo inniu le saol agus oidhreacht mo cara Clive Dutton a cheileirú agus a chur i bhur láthair.”


“Honoured guests, it is indeed a privilege and a source of joy tinged with sadness that sees me here today to celebrate and reflect on the life and legacy of my friend Clive Dutton.”


He continued:


“I’m not sure when Gaelic was last spoken in this beautiful Cathedral, or even if it has ever been spoken here before but I do know that Clive would be thrilled that he was its inspiration and its cause.”


Sean then invited the assembled congregation to give each other a big ‘Clive Dutton hug’ in honour and memory of Clive, who was above all else a people person.


Concluding his remarks Sean said:


“The full legacy of his contributions are yet to be revealed, but he has already succeeded in taking cultural difference out of the negative realm of confrontation and transformed it into an affirmation of tolerant pluralism, catalysing and releasing tremendous human and economic creativity. Not bad for a lad from the Black Country.”
