Sinn Féin MP Michelle Gildernew has paid tribute to Dungannon-born charity worker Sally O’Neill Sanchez following her death in a road collision in Guatemala. 

The Fermanagh and South Tyrone MP said:

“News of the death of Sally O’Neill Sanchez in a car crash in Guatemala has saddened and shocked her native Dungannon. 

“Her charity work,  particularly with Trócaire, for almost four decades transformed the lives of so many people across the world. 

“Her dedication and compassion, together with her commitment to human rights is an inspiration to many. 

“My thoughts and sympathies are with her family and friends, both in Dungannon and across the world, at this sad and difficult time.”
