The Carrickmines Fire Disaster, Five Years On: Who Is My Neighbour?

Father Dermot, along with Martin Collins, spoke movingly yesterday, on Newstalk, about the impacts and legacy of the horrific fire at homes of Traveller families in Carrickmines on Saturday, 10th October 2015. Ten people died as a result of this tradgedy, five of them were kids. What has changed since then? Could it happen again? How can we help to ensure it doesn’t happen again? Are Travellers your neighbour?

Father Dermot will speak further on this issue during the homily of tomorrow’s 10am Mass.
