Striking memorial remembers John, Tomás & Amelia Mullan one year on from Donegal tragedy

A poignant stained glass sculpture has been erected in memory of the three members of the Mullan family who lost their lives in a tragedy in Inishowen last year.

John, Tomás (14) and six-year-old Amelia Mullan died when the car they were travelling in left the road in bad weather and entered Lough Foyle on August 20, 2020.

The family had been returning to their home in Moville from a family day out at a bowling alley complex in Derry. John’s wife and Tomás and Amelias’ mother, Geraldine was rescued from the waters on that day.

The stunning, three pillared memorial features rainbow coloured stained glass inserts and is located at the site of the tragedy along the main Muff to Moville Road near Quigley’s Point.

The local community came together at the centre for a family HOPE day organised by Geraldine on Sunday.

The Sunflower Festival in Inishowen this year was also dedicated to the Mullan family and many people across Inishowen and beyond have been growing sunflowers and displaying them in their areas.
