The Mullan Hope Centre has pleaded with people not to enter the field filled with sunflowers to remember the late John, Tomás and Amelia Mullan.
Thousands of people visited the field in Quigley’s Point over the weekend to mark the second anniversary of the tragic loss of the beautiful family from Moville.
John’s wife and the children’s mother, Geraldine kindly posed and met with more than 10,000 visitors over the weekend.
The field in which thousands of beautiful sunflowers bloomed was kind loaned to the Mullan Hope Centre by local farmer John McCarron.
But a spokesperson for the centre has now asked people not to enter onto the land.
“As we relive the weekend’s memories through the vast amount of messages, photographs and videos we have received, we would like to you know that the Field of Hope is now CLOSED to the public.
“It was a weekend event which was organised to mark the 2nd anniversary of John, Tomás and Amelia Mullan. The field has now been returned to the farmer, and access to the field is now NOT PERMITTED due to it being returned to a working farm status.
“Please can we respect and thank the generosity of the farmer John McCarron by not trying to access his field any further.
“We would like to thank you all for your understanding and please watch this space for updates.
Please do keep sharing your photos and memories using the #fieldofhope. These will form part of an archive of this remarkable project.
“For now, we will let Geraldine take some time to reflect on the enormity of support she received over the weekend and let her remember her family in peace.”
