PARC remembers crash victims 19.11.07

MORE than 100 balloons were released into the skies over Buncrana yesterday in special ceremony to remember the victims of road traffic accidents throughout the country.
The ceremony was organised by the Public Against Road Carnage (PARC) and the group's founder Susan Gray from Culdaff.
It was organised to coincide with World Day of Remembrance for Road Traffic Victims, which was supported by the Road Safety Authority (RSA).
The scene of a fatal crash which occurred  on October 15 2007 at Claggan on the main Moville to Gleneely road.
Susan, whose husband Stephen was killed on St. Stephen’s night several years ago, said she received a call from a girl who had lost her boyfriend in an accident just a fortnight ago.
“It is a very fitting tribute to all our lost loved ones, to have a day each year set aside in memory of their life on this earth,” she said.
“It is also a day to remember all those who have been seriously injured on our roads, many needing permanent care for the rest of their lives."
