Covid-19 - Ceremony of Remembrance and Reflection 25.05.22

ON Sunday, May 22nd, the Donegal Community Forum held a ceremony of Remembrance and Reflection in the Diamond, Lifford to remember those who lost their lives during the Covid-19 pandemic. The ceremony was hosted by the Cathaoirleach of Donegal County Council, Cllr Jack Murray and paid tribute to the community and state agencies who together faced the challenges of Covid.

Following addresses by the Cathaoirleach Jack Murray and Donegal County Council Chief Executive John G. McLaughlin, a wreath was laid and a moment of reflection took place with participation by representatives of Civil Defence, Youth, Traveller and Black and Ethnic Minority Communities.
A photographic exhibition of images submitted by the public, community groups and state agencies was also opened. This exhibition will visit each of the Donegal County Council public services centres in the coming weeks and will then be submitted to the County Museum for retention as part of their History in the Making – Donegal’s Covid-19 Story.
Cathaoirleach, Cllr Jack Murray, said: “This event is a time to reflect on the last two years and the impact it has had on all our lives. It gives us an opportunity to remember those who have lost their lives during the pandemic and the families they have left behind. We also pay tribute to all the frontline workers across all sectors of society for their commitment and outstanding efforts throughout the pandemic”.
John G. McLaughlin, Chief Executive, Donegal County Council, said: “I am grateful for the opportunity to express our gratitude to all of the agencies who made up the Donegal Community Forum for their work to ensure that all actions and supports necessary were delivered to the people of the county throughout the pandemic. As we emerge from the pandemic, I know that the people of the county truly recognise the value of our essential workers and have an increased confidence in the strong bonds that exists throughout our communities”.
