2 June, 2013 - by Chris Hazzard

Sinn Féin MLA Chris Hazzard has offered his condolences to the families of Kevin O’Hare and Colin Polland who tragically drowned at Paul’s Quarry last night.

Mr. Hazzard stated,

“My heartfelt sympathy goes out to the families at this time for their loss.  The entire community is in shock at this double tragedy at this disused quarry.

“There have been similar tragedies in Derry and Strabane over the past few years and more needs to be done to improve safety at large bodies of water.

“I would urge young people not to be tempted to swim in unauthorised pools of water as there are many dangers as last night tragedy has shown.”
