Statement of following traffic tragedy in Clonmel

We are all shocked by this tragic news of four young lives lost in the car accident yesterday evening near Clonmel, Co Tipperary. 

I offer my sincere sympathy to all the families, friends, classmates and teachers of those who have died.  

Together, with the whole community of the people of Clonmel, the diocese and throughout the country, we will be there to stand beside and support the heart-broken and all those affected by this tragedy.  

May God help all to have strength and may He take those who have died so young into his loving arms.  

Holy Mary pray for us now and at the hour of our death.
