Death of young child ‘tragic’

11 October, 2008

Newry and Mourne Sinn Féin Councillor Brendan Curran said that news of the death of a young child in the Hill Street locality of Newry city this evening had shocked and numbed the entire community.

"Any sudden death is terrible but that of a young child is particularly tragic" said the DPP Chairperson who also said that at this stage circumstances about the tragic incident which claimed the life of the young child were unclear.

"Our thoughts and prayers are with the family of the young child who has lost her life as they try to come to terms with such a devastating loss." ENDS
