Tramore in Mourning

Tramore is in deep mourning today as the community tries to come to terms with a horrific car crash out along the Cliff Road last night.

A sixteen year old school girl lost her life and two other teenagers are seriously injured.

Our hearts go out to the family and friends of the girl who died and our thoughts are with the injured boy and girl and the driver who, though, not badly injured will clearly be scarred for life.

Every parent lives in dread of these awful accidents which can bring such drastic changes in a heartbeat.

The community is certainly drawing together to try and support those who have been beareved and injured. I guess we all know that this could just as easily be one of our own children and, in a small place like this, where people know each other, there is a sense that we have lost a child who was part of Tramore and its environs.

A sad, sad time here which will live on in the collective memory for a long, long time.

Rest in Peace, Beautiful Young Woman and know that you are held in the most loving arms imaginable.

  1. I’m so very sorry, Jean. That’s just terrible news. Any loss of life hurts but to lose youth is especially painful.
    Prayers for those who will suffer with the scars of this tragedy for the rest of their lives.

  2. It was awful news and hopefully those who are injured will recover without life changing injuries.
    Each Sunday I wave my three eldest goodbye as they leave for college and never relax until I know they are safely landed.

    1. Hi Tric, oh I know that feeling you write of. That dread of a life changing phonecall that was visited on the poor families in this tragic accident that happened on such a lovely road by the sea.

  3. Yes I read that with sinking heart. The poor parents in particular, and the driver who’ll now never be free of guilt. The world can be a sad place and one’s place in it changed forever.
