Statement from Bishop Rooke in response to the death of Det. Garda Colm Horkan

The Bishop of Tuam, Killala and Achonry, the Rt Revd. Patrick Rooke, whose home is in Co. Mayo, extends the sympathy and sadness of the Church of Ireland population in the county of Mayo and wider diocese to the family of Detective Garda Colm Horkan. His tragic death reminds us yet again of the debt we owe to An Garda Síochána and to all those essential workers who ensure our safety.
