I’m very sad to report the death of Catherine Murphy.
Catherine was one of the first volunteers with New Horizon when the Direct Provision site opened in 2000. At that time conditions were very difficult and we were all attempting to understand what was happening and what we could and should do.
Officially Catherine taught English but her real contribution was to listen and help whenever she could. Her gentle and kind nature made her a good friend at a time when we badly needed friends.
Ar dheis Dé go raibh a hanam uasal
May her noble soul be at the right hand of God.
