Paying tribute after the news of the passing of former North Belfast Sinn Féin Councillor Margaret McClenaghan, Carál Ní Chuilín MLA said,

"Everyone was shocked at the news of Margaret's passing and I wish to extend my deepest sympathies to Margaret's family and loved ones.

"Margaret was a life long republican activist, former Belfast City Councillor and campaigner for the rights of women and ex-prisoners. "Even through her illness Margaret continued to be politically active after she left the council.

"A regular attendee at public meetings a campaigner for housing and facilities for the people of Ardoyne, Margaret continued to work away.

"It's been a long battle for Margaret through the hardest of times and in the most difficult of circumstances.

"Margaret will be missed so much but she has left behind a legacy of dedication to the people of Ardoyne and republican values of equality and social justice."
