A special Mass will be celebrated this evening Wednesday July 6th in St. Brigid’s Church, Dangan, for injured Garda Inspector Niall Flood who has strong Boyle connections.
Niall, who was off duty at the time, suffered very serious injuries in an incident while out cycling near his home in Newcastlewest, Co. Limerick last Thursday evening, when he was struck by a car which allegedly failed to stop at the scene.
Niall is son of Claire Flood (nee Biesty, formerly Carrick Road, Boyle) and sister of Edel Flood (Carrick Road).
The Mass for Niall’s recovery will be held in St Brigid’s Church, Dangan, Kilmore (N41 AX27) commencing at 7.30pm this evening.
A woman arrested in connection with the incident, was released without charge earlier this week.
