Easter Message of Archbishop Eamon Martin: 

“I have been praying for the loved ones and colleagues of the talented young journalist, Lyra McKee, whose life was so cruelly and pointlessly ended by violence in my home city of Derry. May Lyra rest in peace …. We are called to be reconcilers and peacemakers, willing to help heal the wounds of the past in our families, society and Church” – Archbishop Eamon Martin
