“Stephen’s mother Margaret has provided her blessing for the park to be renamed right after her son,” Burke informed the Irish Examiner. “She reported she would really like if that happened and would be so very pleased if that was to transpire.”

“I pray to God this happens. It would be just incredible to hold Stephens memory alive eternally (sic),” he tweeted. “Perfectly accomplished Dublin Council.”
