A quick note to say that the Keane family’s Appeal, heard by Morag Ellis QC Dean of the Arches, (Province of Canterbury) on Wednesday 24th February, has been successful. This means that the family can erect a headstone at their mother’s grave with the words in ár gcroíthe go deo (in our hearts forever) inscribed without translation. A translation will be held in the parish register.
Congratulations to everyone involved: to the Keane family for their courage, dignity and tenacity; to their legal team: Caoilfhionn Gallagher QC, Mary Rachel McCabe QC and Caroline Brogan, Solicitor – and also to the legal team of Conradh na Gaeilge, who also argued on their behalf.
