Teresa (Tracey) Doherty was a friend and an inspiration to me. She had time for everyone and like the Irish always do, had a special place in her heart for the underdog.

She started her career as a nurse but went back to university and became a lawyer. Becoming a judge at a relatively early age was a wonderful feat for a woman in the 1970's and her court-room decisions were beyond reproach.

She befriended many Papua New Guineans and I am very proud to call her a friend.

Dear Arthur,

Just by chance I was revisiting CP Snow's Two Cultures Rede Lecture at Cambridge i 1959 covering the divergence of the arts and sciences at UK universities and came across another fabulous woman from Northern Ireland,Baroness Onora O'Neill:

Her background would make a pretty impressive CV

I am sure Teresa would know of her.
