Petition to back Fr David staying

Over 1000 people have signed a petition to keep Fr David Bradley in Holy Family.

An online petition was launched by St Nicholas GAA club, stating that they were 'saddened and shocked by the news that after 26 years in the parish Fr. David Bradley is being relocated to a new parish.

'Fr. Bradley has always been a pillar in our community be it in the schools or with our local GAA club. He has brought about many positive changes over his years as our parish priest and we hope he is allowed to continue this great work.'

They say he has always gone above and beyond getting involved and connected with the community.

'We can all agree this will be a huge loss to our parish if he is made to leave. We hope by getting as many signatures as possible it might prove how much he means to our parish and community and be allowed to remain as our parish priest.'

'He has made the parish a proper community for young & old,' one of those that signed the petition remarked.
