Sad News

Our friend, colleague and NVR advocate, Catrina Scanlan, has passed away unexpectedly but peacefully. We are shocked and saddened by this news. Our sympathies go out to the people with whom Catrina worked and especially to her partner, her family and her close friends who are suffering a bereavement and mourning the loss of Catrina. Funeral by webcam arrangements and a link to leave messages for the family are here: https://rip.ie/death-notice/catrina-scanlan-rathfarnham-dublin/424284
