Prayer Service at Dale Farm

Father Dan, leading a prayer service for Dale Farm residents on site

Residents facing eviction and local supporters gathered together today outside Mary Ann’s chalet for a special prayer service, led by their local priest, Father Dan. The Irish Travellers at Dale Farm are all devout Catholics and, over the past ten years, have become a fixed part of the Our Lady of Good Counsel parish in nearby Wickford.

The Irish Chaplaincy in Britain has today formally condemned the eviction and the Bishop of Brentwood will soon be issuing a formal statement to the same effect.
