Margaret McAloon, the Scottish member of Yarenler, was upset by the death of her 44 year old son, Allan James McAloon. Margaret was upset by the sudden death of his son who was working as a doctor in South Africa and left her work she was preparing for the New Year and flew South Africa. Ölüdeniz Mayor Keramettin Yılmaz and Füsun Karabulut and Aysu Yenigü, Turkish teachers of the British, visited Margaret McAloon at her home and gave her their condolences. Yılmaz explained, “Ölüdeniz Yarenler Group who show great efforts for the promotion of Ölüdeniz and country despite their old age had been rehearsing for a new folk song and play. They were trying to combine Gangnam Style and Terekem Play Temir Aga that reflect our culture and planning to welcome the New Year with this song. Unfortunately, our group was upset by this sudden death. I am sorry for their loss and wish them patience. We will always be with them. We plan to present the new play in January.” (FG)
