28 November, 2008

Sinn Féin MP for Fermanagh /South Tyrone, Michelle Gildernew, has spoken of her shock at the death of two young people in a road traffic accident near Florencecourt.

Ms Gildernew said:

"The loss of such two young people is tragic at any time, but when two children are taken from loved ones a few weeks before Christmas it is even more poignant.

"Our thoughts and prayers are with the families and their circle of friends and relatives at this time. I know they must be heartbroken and I can assure them of the support of the whole community at this most difficult time.

"There is an issue surround safety on rural roads. With darkness falling early in the evening and small, narrow roads I would urge drivers to slow down take extra care while pedestrians should ensure they are highly visible wearing items such as reflective clothing or arm bands."
