Bishop Crean asks for prayers for all affected by tragic deaths in Cobh

Bishop William Crean, Bishop of Cloyne, has asked for prayers for all of those affected by the tragic events in Cobh on Sunday afternoon. Bishop Crean said, “I was deeply shocked to hear of the deaths of Michael and Valerie Greaney and the serious injuries suffered by their daughter, Michelle. I ask the faithful of the diocese to pray for all of those affected by these sad events. May the light of Christ, whose coming into the world we celebrate at Christmas, help to guide us through this great darkness which has fallen on the community of Cobh, and on the diocese as a whole.”
