Memorial service to mark anniversary of Bray tragedy

The families of two firefighters who died in a blaze in Co Wicklow a year ago are holding a memorial service today to mark the first anniversary of the tragedy.

Brian Murray (aged 46) and Mark O'Shaughnessy (aged 26) died when the roof of a disused industrial building in Bray collapsed while they were tackling a fire in the structure.

Both men were part-time firefighters.

Their families plan to mark the anniversary today with a special service at the site of the blaze, while a mass will also be held at the Church of the Holy Redeemer in Bray tomorrow.
