8 July, 2013 - by Gerry Adams

Sinn Féin President Gerry Adams TD has extended his sincere condolences to the families of two young men killed in an accident outside Kilrea in the early hours of Saturday morning.

Mr. Adams said:

“I want to extend my sincere condolences and those of Sinn Féin to the families of Declan McKenna and Christopher O Neill who were killed in a road accident in the early hours of Saturday morning.

"Christopher O’Neill was the Chairperson of the local Sinn Féin Cumman in Kilrea. He was also the grandson of my friend and party colleague Councillor John Davey who killed by loyalists in 1989.

"The deaths of these two young men has come as a huge shock to their families, to the local community and to republicans everywhere.

 "On behalf of Sinn Féin I wish to extend my sympathy and condolences to the O Neill and McKenna families."
