Default Eilidh MacLeod of Barra, aged 14

It is only proper that we should remember and pray for young Eilidh MacLeod of Barra, a fellow piper, killed in the Manchester bombing.

Her friend Laura MacIntyre, also of Barra, was with her and is in hospital, seriously wounded.

I read about this. Such a waste of a young life. Prayers for the families and the survivors.

There are some pictures of pipers and dancers at her school's website, but it's difficult to identify anybody. An article out today shows the girl with some of her awards: http://www.bbc.com/news/uk-scotland-highlands-islands-40067176

and a bit more in this update about her friend: http://www.bbc.com/news/uk-scotland-...lands-40054347
