Bridget O’Toole’s mixed emotions on her husband’s posthumous award

NEIL MITCHELL

Dermot O’Toole is posthumously being awarded with the Star of Courage.

Mr O’Toole died coming to his wife’s assistance during an armed robbery at a Hastings jewellery store in 2013.

His wife Bridget will accept the award.

Bridget told Neil Mitchell she has mixed emotions about the announcement.

“We’re just so proud of Dermot, but we’re very emotional,” she said on Thursday.

“It’s very sad that it’s a posthumous award.

“I’m thrilled that he’s going to be remembered in this way. We’re incredibly honoured.”
