18 March, 2019 - by Mary Lou McDonald TD


The Sinn Féin President Mary Lou McDonald has extended her deepest sympathies to the families of the young people lost at the incident in Tyrone last night.

Ms McDonald called on those with any information to help the PSNI in their investigation into what happened.

The Sinn Féin President said:

“I cannot fathom the horror that the parents of these children are going through this morning. What should have been a night of fun and celebration for young people has turned into a night of tragedy.

“I wish to extend my deepest sympathies and condolences to all the families affected at this time of heartbreak, shock and loss.

“The PSNI have asked that any young people with footage of what happened do not post it on social media. I echo those calls and ask that any information or footage is given to police in order aid the investigation into this horrific tragedy.”
