24 October 2002

Several days ago, I heard the news of the death of Mr Des Ashe, the Guidance Counsellor at St Pat's College. He had been struggling with cancer for a number of years. Des was always a support to me and he had a real concern for students who were dealing with difficult issues. My sympathies to Des' family, his friends and the College community of St Pat's. I am sorry not to be closer to you all. God bless you all. Rest in Peace, Des.
