THE NEW QUAY BOAT DISASTER
OUR LADY OF FATIMA
INTERCEDE FOR THEM
At the end of our walk at Easter around Abbey Hill, we found ourselves at the church in New Quay. This plaque was the first that I ever heard of the Boat Disaster.
I have learnt a bit more since then and have watched RTE coverage at the time.
So simple and easy to happen. So near. So horrific.
Sometimes it is easy to say ‘Health & Safety gone mad’ but sometimes we are reminded of its benefits and wonder ‘what if’….
