Maimie Aherne: a pro-life champion

Like so many others, we were deeply saddened to say farewell to our beautiful friend Maimie Aherne from Duleek, who was a brave, wise, compassionate and steadfast champion for mothers and babies. 

As her funeral heard, she was a voice for those who had no voice, and was inspired by her faith and her belief that every person, every life was important. Maimie gave endless time, effort and prayers to the cause of protecting both mother and child and always did so with great compassion and a ready heart. She helped to support women with unexpected pregnancies on many occasions and in a myriad of different ways, and she did it all with a smile. 

Maimie was also a fearless public witness for Life, and brightened many pro-life witnesses, events and campaigns with her kind and gracious presence, her good humour and her counsel. She will be very sadly missed. 

Our thoughts and prayers are with her much-loved family. I gcomhluadar na nAingeal go mbeidh sí. Rest in peace Maimie.
