This Sunday, 19 November marks ‘World Day of Remembrance for Road Traffic Victims’ when commemorations take place globally to remember those injured or killed in road traffic collisions.
In Drogheda a special memorial mass will take place in the Augustinian Church, Drogheda at 1:15pm on Sunday 19 November. All are welcome.
In 2006 Drogheda became the first town in the country to hold such a memorial mass. It was organised by Monasterboice man Michael O’Neill and Fr. Iggy O’Donavan. Michael lost his 21 year-old daughter Fiona in 2001when she was killed along with her boyfriend Dominic Wogan (23) in a crash at Tullyesker, just yards from her home.
