12 August, 2020 - by Michelle O'Neill

Sinn Féin Leas Uachtarán Michelle O'Neill has appealed for anyone with information that can assist the family of Noah Donohoe in their search for the truth about his death to come forward. 

Michelle O'Neill said: 

"The death of 14 year-old Noah Donohoe was a tragedy which stunned us all and touched the hearts of everyone. 

"Our thoughts go first and foremost to Noah's mother, Fiona, and to all who knew and loved him. 

"I have met with Fiona and with her legal team and have told them I will do everything in my power to assist them in getting the truth. 

"Understandably, people are now looking for answers around the circumstances which surrounded Naoh’s tragic death. In particular, the role of the PSNI in investigating Noah's disappearance and his death has been questioned by some.

"The Senior Coroner has opened an inquest into Noah’s death, and a hearing date has been set for January 2021.

"I would appeal to anyone with any evidence or information in respect of Noah’s disappearance to bring this immediately to the PSNI, [email protected], Fiona Donohoe’s Solicitor, Niall Murphy or Relatives for Justice.

"I would also reiterate the family’s plea to the householders in the relevant areas, to secure any private CCTV from 21st June at around 6pm and bring it to Police, the Coroner or Noah’s representatives.

"I would further appeal for householders to take steps to ensure that any such CCTV does not overwrite itself, as that can be an automated technical setting on CCTV systems. 

"All families are entitled to know the truth surrounding the deaths of their loved ones and this must be the case for the family of Noah Donohoe. 

"I fully support Fiona and the Donohoe family in their search for the truth about the tragic death of Noah.. Noah's memory deserves nothing less."
