Hazzard expresses sympathies after Mournes deaths
Sinn Féin MP Chris Hazzard has expressed his condolences following the deaths of two walkers in the Mournes today.
The South Down MP said:
“The tragic news that two men died today while walking in the Mournes will have shocked the entire local community.
“The first died on Wee Binnion while the second lost his life after a fall in Slieve Commedagh.
I’d like to commend Mountain Rescue and the emergency services who responded to today’s incidents and who also rescued a third walker who got into difficulties elsewhere in the Mournes.
“My thoughts and condolences are with the family and friends of those who tragically died in these incidents in the Mournes today.”
