City violence described as the ‘fruit of greed’

The ongoing violence and murder in Limerick will be described as the ‘fruit of greed’ in a statement by Limericks bishop Donal Murray.

In the statement which will be read out at masses around the city this weekend, he described the hatred and desire for revenge,

“Can those who engage in such evil actions not see what is so obvious to everyone else - the utter futility of brutal behavior which disregards the value of human life, which brings tragedy and sorrow to the families of their victims, and which shrivels their own humanity?”

Public figures are trying to quell the tensions in the city since the murders of Mark Maloney and James Cronin last weekend.
