Statement by Bishop Browne on the death of Sr Imelda Carew and Sr Paula Buckley

15 Aug 2014

Bishop Ray, Bishop Bill and the Diocese would like to extend their deepest sympathy to the families of Sr. Imelda Carew and Sr. Paula Buckley who died yesterday at Inch in Co. Kerry. It is a shocking and sudden tragedy and a great loss for their families, including their Presentation family and friends.
The Presentation Order is greatly valued here in Kerry Diocese, and we are all saddened at the loss of two of their members while on holiday here in Kerry.

We also acknowledge the work of all the emergency services who give such expert care in these difficult circumstances.

May the Sisters be at peace with the Risen Lord whom they served in their lives.


  • Bishop Ray Browne is Bishop of Kerry
