  • Family ask media for privacy and space to grieve with dignity

Father Patrick McCarthy, curate of Inniscarra Parish, Berrings, Co Cork, in the Diocese of Cloyne, has asked the Catholic Communications Office to advise media that the Funeral Mass for Matthew Healy RIP will take place at 12.00pm tomorrow Thursday, 26 January 2023, in Saint Mary’s Church.

Father McCarthy will be the chief celebrant at this Mass.  As the church has limited capacity, attendance will be reserved for friends, relatives and parishioners. 

In accordance with the wishes of the family for privacy and space, and out of respect for the solemnity of the Mass, journalists are asked not to use camera equipment within the church or on its grounds.  A public address system will be in place to relay the Mass to those attending outside of the church.  The Mass will be streamed live on

Information on the Funeral Liturgy will be published when it is available.  Please direct all media queries to the Catholic Communications Office, contact details below.
