The presence of people at the event will be a 'huge comfort' to families who have lost a loved one.

The annual 'Gone But Not Forgotten' Bikers Memorial Mass will take place at 8pm this evening in the Sacred Heart Church, Clones.

Tonight will mark the return of the "unique" event for the first time since the Covid-19 pandemic.

However, Brian MacUaid who is PRO of the Bikers' Memorial committee says the group has lost a number of "key figures" since then, following the death of Chairperson Fr John Kearns last December and the sudden passing of Committee Treasurer, Kieran KB Brennan, as a result of a fatal motorcycle collision back in March.

Speaking to Northern Sound, Brian said the grief will be "closer to home" this year, but believes the sheer presence of numbers attending tonight will be a "huge comfort" to families who have lost a loved one.
