As he celebrated Mass to mark 50 years of the work of the Cuan Mhuire treatment centre in Bruree, Bishop Leahy said: “We owe it to one another in Ireland, as a collective work of mercy on the part of society as a whole, but then also of each of us individually, to keep up our will to do something about the rising levels of addiction in society.

“We need to keep reminding each other, our families and our communities, our clubs and associations, our government officials and education establishments, our marketing outlets and media, to be courageous and put addictions on the agenda for discussion and action,” he said.
