Shane Geoghegan, who was murdered in Limerick on 9th November, in a case of mistaken identity, was a past pupil of Crescent College Comprehensive. When he graduated in 1999, his certificate from the school stated that the school took pride in Shane’s achievements, and Shane was well known and loved by his fellow students and his teachers. His parents Mary and Tom and his brother Anthony (also a past student of Crescent) were given great cross-community support, from Shane’s school friends, his sporting companions and his work colleagues. The chief celebrant at the funeral Mass was his former teacher and friend, Fr. Jim Maher SJ.
