Manuela, a 17 year old Swiss student lost her life on The Line to the city from Renmore in October 2007.
Manuela’s parents, Hans Peter and Arlette will be travelling to Galway from their home near Bern in Switzerland to be in attendance.
They have been so appreciative of the people of Galway who have both supported and welcomed them back to Galway over the last numbers of years.
The city was numbed by the tragic loss of Manuela in 2007 and in turn the people responded with thousands of signatures to books of condolences and attended services throughout the city at the time of her death.
