Archbishop Clifford calls for prayers following tragic deaths in Ballycotton today

I am deeply shocked to learn of the tragic deaths of two children and their father in Ballycotton today.

My heart goes out to all concerned; the children’s mother, to the extended family, relatives and friends and to the community of Ballycotton and to the people of the whole parish of Cloyne.

On behalf of the people and priests of the diocese, I offer my sincere and heartfelt condolences and I ask for prayers for the deceased and for those who are grieving.

Archbishop Dermot Clifford
Apostolic Administrator of Cloyne

ENDS
