“Two of our young parishioners, Bridget and Paddy, were involved in a tragic road accident on Easter Sunday. I join with the parish community of Ahascragh and Caltra, in asking God to give his consolation and strength to the Ward family, and to guide those who are caring for Paddy in hospital. May Jesus, whose Resurrection we celebrated on Easter Sunday, be close to Bridget and give her eternal life with all the saints. I offer my condolences also to the community of Creggane Estate and to the teachers and all their young friends at Eglish National School.”
