Sinn Féin MLA Caitriona Ruane has said she is shocked to hear of the deaths of two young men in a road accident near Rostrevor last night.
Ms. Ruane said,
“I was deeply shocked this morning at the news that two young men died and another was injured in a road accident in Rostrevor late last night.
“My thoughts are with the families of the two young men who lost their lives last night and the family of the young man who is fighting for his life in hospital.
“Again we have seen young men who had their entire lives in front of them being killed in tragic circumstances.
