Donnyloop murder has sent shockwaves throughout the community

13 February, 2008

Sinn Féin West Tyrone MP Pat Doherty has described the murder of a man at Donnyloop on the Donegal/Tyrone border last night as an appalling act which has sent shockwaves throughout the community.

He said,

"First and foremost it must be borne in mind that a family has been plunged into deep grieving as a result of this appalling act and right across the community this morning the universal reaction I have been hearing has been one of shock and disbelief immediately followed by words of heartfelt sympathy for the victim's family.

"There is also a deep sense of anger in the community that the victim was murdered in front of St Columba's Parish Church and that children who were attending a youth club in the adjoining community centre were witness to last night's terrible events.

"I would encourage anyone with information about this murder to bring it forward to the Garda investigation." ENDS
