Dolores’ mother, Eileen, joined by Dolores’ brothers, Terry, Joe, and Donal with his wife Stephanie, and Dolores’ niece Katie, told the newspaper:

“I feel so happy that the people of Limerick were so good, and from all over Ireland and the world. I can’t believe the reaction from everybody, the love that poured out, and the support from everybody”

She also commented:

“Getting this book is another step forward. It’s hard, but it’s another step in moving on. I can’t believe that all those names are there, all those people. It’s at home I’ll be thinking of it. And I will read every one of them in my own time”


“I read some of the letters, and everyone says how she helped them through the dark moments in their lives. I really feel she’s happy now. I go to her grave, but I don’t find anything there. I feel that her spirit is around all the time. She was that type of person anyway, she would come into the room, even as a child, and she would grab the attention.”

Mayor Stephen Keary explained this was the biggest book of condolence that was ever presented by the authority.
