Gildernew comments after Tyrone traffic tragedies

12 July, 2009

Sinn Fein MP for Fermagh and South Tyrone Michelle Gildernew has said her thoughts and prayers are with those families affected by tragic accidents on our roads over these past two days.

Ms Gildernew was speaking after an accident which claimed the life of 21 year old Mark McGirr from Sixmilecross, as well as leaving a number of others in critical condition. As well as news of the death of Tyrone man, Andrew Neill, who was killed at a motorcycle race in County Westmeath.

Speaking this evening Ms Gildernew said;

“My thoughts and prayers are with all those families so tragically affected by these events. This will be an incredibly difficult time for them as they no doubt had hoped to enjoy the summer months with their loved ones.

These tragedies cut deep through communities and I know that many people throughout Tyrone and beyond will be devastated by the news; however I do know that they will offer all the support, comfort and love that they can to the families involved at this horrific time.” CRÍOCH
