The annual Mass in remembrance of all those lost at sea, and for their families will be celebrated in Helvick Lifeboat Station on Helvick Pier in Co.Waterford on Friday night of next week, May 13, by RNLI Station Chaplain Fr. Conor Kelly at 7.30pm.
A memorial in memory of those Lifeboat men who have lost their lives in the service of the RNLI saving others at sea on this coastline will be unveiled on Helvick Pier before the Mass begins. Nicholas Hannigan of the Dungarvan and Helvick RNLI Fundraising Branch said: “In 1852 the following brave local men lost their lives: Thomas Crawford, Capt Maurice Duggan, Laurence Lenihan, John Maher, Thomas McNamara, Maurice Mulcahy, Michael Raher and John Whelan. In 1895 Michael Hogan gallantly lost his. It is fitting that heroes from all around the Dungarvan Bay area should be remembered at home too and we hope their descendants can join us for the unveiling! Everybody is welcome to attend.”
