Archbishop Seán Brady’s statement on the murder of Paul Quinn
23rd October 2007
STATEMENT FROM MOST REVEREND SEÁN BRADY ON THE MURDER OF PAUL QUINN
The brutal murder of Paul Quinn has shocked and appalled a whole community. I offer my sympathy to his grieving parents and family.
This barbaric deed should be seen for what it is – evil and inexcusable, causing revulsion and shame in all right-minded people. It shows a total lack of respect for the God-given gift of human life.
I hope that those who carried out this atrocious crime will soon be apprehended and brought to justice. Those with information have a duty before God to pass it on to the Gardaí or PSNI. The tyranny of violence and intimidation must be defeated.
The Quinn family have pleaded that there should be no reprisal for Paul’s death. I appeal for that call to be totally respected.
