Comment Email Print
 The Bishop of Meath, Dr Michael Smith has called for prayers for those killed and injured in Monday afternoon's accident involving a school bus near Navan, Co Meath. Dr Smith said yesterday: "No words can begin to convey the shock and sadness that people in the diocese are feeling following this terrible accident in which five young girls tragically lost their lives. Neither can words adequately express the immense grief and pain being experienced by the families who have lost their young daughters. "I offer my deepest sympathies to those bereaved. My thoughts and prayers are also with those who have been injured and with their families and friends. "I call on people across the diocese to unite in prayer this evening for the young victims and their families, for the injured and their families and for the teachers and students from the schools affected by this tragedy."
