The community of Midleton in County Cork has been remembering 11-year-old Robert Holohan, who was killed a year ago.

As well as the boy's family and friends, Gardaí, soldiers and volunteers who took part in the search for him have attended a special mass to mark the first anniversary of his death.

In his homily, Father Billy O'Donovan paid tribute to the courage of Robert's parents, Mark and Majella, since the tragic loss of their son.

“In the past 12 months, you’ve shown remarkable courage and strength. You’ve been an example under extraordinary difficult circumstances,” he said.
