We extend our condolences to the victims of the Berkeley California tragedy and offer our deepest sympathies to the families concerned. We have had Requiem Mass offered for the repose of their souls.

Eimear features in a photograph below taken at a young pioneer meeting during her schooldays. She is the centre of the three.
