Remembering Ashling Murphy

Published on January 25, 2022

You Joined Us Online To Reflect…

Thank you to the many many people who joined us online on Thursday January 20th at 8pm from SS John & Paul Church, Shannon, to remember Ashling Murphy. As we gathered together in an online community, candles were lit in our own community, across Ireland and many countries who joined us live online, so that collectively we shone a light of hope in this time of darkness and grief.  We also invited you to wear a white ribbon, a symbol of the world’s largest movement to end gender based violence, or simply to wear something white, the universal symbol of peace. Thank you for being with us! Thank you for caring!

Online Book of Condolence has been opened by Clare Co. Council on

Ar dheis Dé go raibh a hanam dílis.
