More than 200 people gathered at the Cathedral of the Most Holy Trinity this evening (Saturday) for a special vigil in memory of six-year-old Matthew Healy who died tragically at Rathmoylan Cove this week.
Bishop of Waterford and Lismore Alphonsus Cullinan had invited people to attend the vigil to join in "solidarity and support during this difficult time".
During the ceremony, Bishop Cullinan prayed that "peace would descend on all in attendance and all of Matthew's family".
He expressed his hope that the prayers from all in attendance would "touch the hearts of all who mourn".
Bishop Cullinan invited the congregation to join with him in reciting a decade of the rosary - and the ceremony ended in song as Bishop Cullinan invited the congregation to join with him in singing 'Amazing Grace'.
