  4. Rev Joseph McCann CM says:

    Sincerest sympathy from the student participants and faculty members of the Wider Horizons Program of the Irish Colleges of Education to the Conlon family and friends on the occasion of the death of Noreen. The welcome and hospitality and personal support in many ways of both Noreen and John at their home was deeply appreciated by us all. They – with their families and friends – played an important role in promoting peace and reconciliation in Northern Ireland among influential Irish young people from both religious and political traditions. At this time Noreen and John are remembered with prayers and blessings, and the Conlon family and community share their grief, with many in Ireland.
