Statement from Archbishop Kieran O’Reilly SMA following road traffic tragedy in Cashel, Co. Tipperary 

31 Aug 2023

It is with great sadness that I send, on behalf of the people, religious and priests of the Archdiocese of Cashel and Emly, my sincere condolences to the family and friends of the O’Reilly family on the death of three family members Tom, Bridgie and their grandson Tom, who died so tragically in the road accident last Monday evening near the town of Cashel.
I pray for those who are recovering in hospital and all who are touched in any way by the tragic road deaths in our county over the past week. May we all walk in kindness and support with those who are mourning and suffering at this time.

May those who have died be welcomed into God’s heavenly peace.
May their souls and the souls of the faithful departed rest in peace. Amen
