Media diary notice for the Funeral Mass of Matthew James Healy RIP

13 Feb 2024

The Funeral Mass for the late Matthew Healy RIP will take place in the Church of the Immaculate Conception, Watergrasshill, Co Cork, T56 H320, in the Diocese of Cork & Ross, at 12.00pm tomorrow, Ash Wednesday, 14 February 2024.  The Chief Celebrant for this Mass will be Father Christy Fitzgerald, Co-Parish Priest.  

To allow Father Fitzgerald the time and space to pastorally care for the grieving family, and to prepare for the Funeral Liturgy, media are asked to direct all queries about this Mass to the Catholic Communication Office in Maynooth, see numbers below. 

To respect the wishes of the family, and the solemnity of the Mass, the church’s webcam will not be turned on, and media photography and cameras are not permitted within the church, before and during the Mass.  In addition, photographers and camera crews are asked to keep a discreet and distant presence outside of the church.

Information on the funeral liturgy, including the homily of Father Fitzgerald, will be published under embargo tomorrow ahead of the celebration of the Funeral Mass.
Thank you for your cooperation at this sensitive time.
