Shrine Erected in Memory of Craig Hanlon


Shrine Erected in Memory of Craig Hanlon

A shrine was erected yesterday in honour of Craig Hanlon, candles have been lit and people have begun to congregate to say prayers for Craig who was left clinically dead after an accident on Monday of this week.  A multitude of flowers and cards have been placed next to a little hut, which was built by Craig’s friends as a place where they could centre their collective grief. The hut contains some of Craig favourite belongings in life such as his Manchester United Jersey.  A poster size picture of the young man has been centrally placed in the tent.

A card from his friends on the fence reads, “To Craig, You have many of hearts broken. The whole area will miss you, Happy Head. We will never forget you. Love you always.” Craig Hanlon, a 20-year-old from Dublin 8, worked as a fish monger and loved fishing in his spare-time. In November, he passed his drivers theory test. He was a very popular young man and adored by all his friends. On Facebook, Craig wrote that he had been in a relationship since 2013. He loved designer tracksuits and runners. Craig had an accident this week when he fell through a roof of a car park used by St James’ Hospital, in Old Basin Lane.  Our thoughts and prayers from everyone in the FRG team are with his parents, family and friends..

The object is not to forget, but to remember to go on.
