Sinn Féin - On Your Side

Adams recalls David Anderson with great affection

10 August, 2017 - by Gerry Adams TD


Sinn Féin President Gerry Adams TD has expressed condolences to the family of David Anderson following his passing. 

Mr Anderson had been the Manager of Hillsborough Castle for more than twenty five years. 

Teachta Adams said;

“I got to meet with David Anderson during many visits to Hillsborough House. He facilitated many private meetings there as well as more formal events. Some of the private meetings were on a one to one basis. 

“David was always hospitable, efficient, and supportive. I got to know him as a thoroughly decent man. I have good memories of many conversations with David about life, making peace, his role in advising on the development of Farmleigh House, and gardening, particularly about trees. Martin McGuinness was delighted that David met him in Dublin to wish him well in the Presidential election. 

“I extend my condolences to David's family at this sad time.”
