As part of the public Day of Remembrance and Recognition, young people from all across the diocese lit 736 candles in St Fin Barre’s Cathedral at 11am on Friday morning, 18th March, one for each day of the pandemic to date in Ireland, in remembrance of those who died during Covid–19 and in recognition of all those who have cared for us during that time.
