Denis Walsh’s coffin is shouldered by family members into Christ the King Church, in Caherdavin, Limerick, this Saturday, 25 years after he went missing. Photograph Press 22TWENTY-five years after being declared missing, Denis Walsh was finally returned to his loving family who laid him to rest in his native Limerick today.Denis, (23), left his home in Caherdavin, on March 9th, 1996, and his family never saw him again.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up Up to last February, when they were visited by gardai with news of Denis’s whereabouts, Mr Walsh’s parents were unaware their son’s partial unidentified remains had been  discovered off Galway Bay, four weeks after he went missing.The remains were held at Galway University College Hospital Mortuary for 18 years, and eventually buried in a communal grave at Bohermore Cemetery in 2014.Mr Walsh’s remains were exhumed last Friday and reinterred in the family’s plot at Castlemungret Cemetery today following his funeral mass held at Christ the King Church, Caherdavin.The family has called for a review of the garda investigations into Denis’s disappearance and recovery of his remains on Inis Mor, on April 7, 1996. Gardai have said as far as they are concerned the case is now closed, and they have no plans to hold a case review.A documentary inquest in which no witnesses will be called, but who will have their statements sworn into the record, is to take place on April 29th.The Walsh family has been told they are not permitted to attend due to COVID-19 restrictions on public gatherings, however Denis Walsh’s father, Denis snr, said he has, through his solicitor,  sought permission from the West Galway coroner to attend the inquest, in order to ask questions about why his son’s remains were not identified sooner.Gardai have said the Forenisc Science Laboratory conducted tests of bodily samples taken from Denis’s remains, in July 2008, March 2011, and June 2017 however a match was not found until February this year through “advances” in DNA science.Mr Walsh snr (81) said he is still awaiting a response from gardai as to whether Galway gardai alerted garda stations, particularly Mayorstone garda station in Limerick who handled his son’s missing person’s file, about the discovery of the remains in 1996, and if not, why not.Family friend, Fr Tom Carroll, told mourners: “It has been a long vigil for the Walsh family as they waited for the news of Denis, and we can only begin to imagine your grief and your pain during that time – the fact that this (25-year) vigil was unnecessary, did not help.”“However, we are not here to discuss what happened, we are here instead to remember Denis and to reflect on the wonder and beauty of his time with us,” Fr Carroll added.The priest said Denis would be remembered for his love of animals, poetry, as well as his sporting prowess, which saw him line out for clubs across all codes, including Shannon RFC, Na Piarsaigh GAA, and Caherdavin Celtic.“It’s quiet unique to see people playing those different disciplines but he excelled in all of them,” said Fr Carroll.Denis’s brother Michael Walsh broke down as he paid a loving tribute to his brother who was “kind, compassionate, and liked a good laugh”.24/4/2021 Story David Raleigh.

MP urges pension investment in UK social and public projects

first_imgSource: Chris McAndrewRobert Jenrick, exchequer secretary to the UK treasury departmentHe also suggested that, as the DC market began to gather substantial assets, not only was this sector prime for tapping for investment, but its savers would expect it to do so.“Technology will drive transparency,” said Jenrick. “Savers will want to understand where their assets are invested – and be more challenging about it too.”He said the DC market – which is set to reach £1trn (€1.1trn) in the UK by 2025 through auto-enrolment – was intent on investing with a focus on environmental, social and governance issues and that technology such as the long-awaited pensions dashboard would eventually enable younger generations of investors to demand more from providers.Alongside the launch of the PLSA’s guide to patient capital, Jenrick said pension funds had a “crucial role to play” in making the UK an attractive place for international businesses to establish and grow.He said by capturing their “patient capital”, these funds could “power the British economy forward”, as the long-term nature of both DB and DC pension fund investments was ideal for funding its growth.The Financial Conduct Authority was seeking to make it easier for DC funds to allocate to these more esoteric long-term investments, Jenrick said, adding that pooled vehicles would be essential to encourage them to get comfortable with the idea. The exchequer secretary to the treasury has called on defined benefit (DB) and defined contribution (DC) pension schemes to invest in UK social infrastructure, suggesting “millennials” will expect their investments to have a positive impact.Speaking at the Pension and Lifetime Savings Association’s (PLSA) Trustee Conference in London today, Robert Jenrick said pension funds with their stock of “patient capital” were ideally placed to fund projects that helped the greater good of society.Jenrick said pension funds were “responsible managers of other people’s savings” but could also be “ambitious custodians of pools of capital” that could drive “private wealth and public good”.He said the government had been meeting with pension fund investors across the UK over the past two years and discovered several were investing in social projects around the world, due to their lack of availability in the UK. Jenrick said investments including sports and environmental facilities, healthcare projects along with a diverse range of options, would be a good fit and welcomed as long as they fitted an investor’s profile.last_img read more
