Hundreds gather for candlelit vigil in memory of Thelma (5) and Michael (2)
The small Co Westmeath village of Multyfarnham came to a standstill on Sunday evening as local residents turned out in large numbers to support a family devastated by the tragic death of two small children in the area at the weekend. Heavy rain which had fallen for most of the day lifted briefly as the quiet, close-knit community gathered to attend a vigil organised in memory of the two young victims. Thelma (5) and her younger brother Michael (2) died as a result of injuries they sustained when the car they were in went on fire a short distance outside Multyfarnham at around 4pm on Friday. The children’s mother, Lynn Egar, who was rescued from the burning vehicle remains in hospital where she is recovering from what are understood to be non-life threatening injuries. The gathering met at the Children of Lir Montessori and Preschool on the Coole Road in Multyfarnham, where Michael had just begun attending earlier this month, before proceeding in a candlelit procession to St Cremin’s National School on the other side of the village where Thelma was a pupil in the senior infants class.

More than 70% of young people considering emigration for better quality of life
More than 70% of young people in Ireland aged 18-24 are considering moving abroad for a better quality of life, a new survey has found. A youth organisation has warned that “unless young voices are heard in this budget, many will choose to leave”. The research was carried out by RedC on behalf of the National Youth Council of Ireland (NYCI) which expressed concern about the “severe impact the cost-of-living crisis is having on young people in Ireland”. The NYCI, which represents 55 voluntary youth organisations, called on the Government to support young people in the upcoming budget to dissuade emigration.
