Salve Accolens Debatable Lands,
It is with exceedingly heavy hearts that we write to you today. Lord Ronan O’Conaill, Ben Nemeth, was found deceased at his home on Saturday morning, August 19th. There are no details yet as to cause.
We are heartbroken at his passing, as he leaves a giant Ronan-sized hole in our Barony and all our lives. Ronan was our Baronial Herald, previous Baronial Chatelain, a Kingdom Deputy Herald, student to Mistress Ts’vee’a, our Baronial Captain of Archers, archer, thrower, fighter, woodworker, tailor, brewer, camp fire master, and a very good friend.
Ronan had a voracious appetite to learn and create, matched only by his patience and kindness in teaching others, and with a loving heart as big as the sky. He was a shining star in our barony and now has been committed to the heavens. We are devastated and we miss him terribly.
Our hearts go out to his ladies Allegra and Elinor, and his family and loved ones. Please respect their privacy at this time; final services are private.
The Barony and we will need some time to fill his shoes, and more communication will come regarding memorial activity and any other information appropriate to share. In the meantime, feel free if you are so moved to wear a favor or armband of torn black cloth, in honor of his Jewish heritage.

Please do hug each other, and reach out to your friends and us for support and love during this difficult time.
With all our Love,
Brandubh et Hilderun
