  47. Dear Patrick, Mary, Ingrid and other family,

    I am deeply sorry for your loss. Daragh was a beloved member of the Muslim community in Sligo and always advised his younger Muslim brothers. I remember him advising my own brother, who sadly passed away suddenly at home aswell late last year. Daragh was a great friend and Zana was very fond of him, we remember him coming to the funeral and offering his condolences. Daragh will forever be remembered as a kind soul amongst all of the Muslim community and we are all sending our thoughts and prayers. We understand exactly what you all must be going through and will keep you in our prayers. May Allah rest his soul and have mercy on him and may he find his place in Jannah, and may both my brother and Daragh find eachother in Jannah as they did on earth. May Allah be pleased with all our Muslim brothers and sisters, ameen. Inna lillahi wa inna ilayhi raji’un.

    May his gentle soul rest in peace in his new home with those gone before.
