She died here in Ireland. Because of the current restrictions, her remains could not be returned to Argentina. Foxford has deep and warm connections with Argentina and the people of Foxford welcomed her as one of their own for burial. It was a very moving occasion.

Alguna personas entran silenciosamente en nuestras vidas y se van silenciosamente también, pero dejan una marca profunda. Esa fue la Embajadora de Argentina, Laura Bernal, orgullosamente argentina y amiga apasionada de Irlanda. Hoy la llevamos a “casa” a descansar en Foxford.

Some people come quietly into our lives and go quietly too, but leave a deep mark. That was Ambassador of Argentina, Laura Bernal, proud Argentinian & passionate friend of Ireland. We brought her “home” to rest in Foxford today. Ar dheis Dé....

Indescribable sadness with the passing today of Eavan Boland who celebrated the centenary of women’s suffrage in Ireland by bringing great poetry to the United Nations. Ar dhéis Dé.
