Martin McGuinness Extends Sympathy To Family Of Brendan Doris

12 January, 2006


Sinn Féin Mid Ulster MP Martin McGuinness today expressed his shock at the death of former party Councillor Brendan Doris and extended his sympathies to the Doris family.

Mr McGuinness said:

“Brendan Doris served the people of East Tyrone as a Sinn Féin Councillor for many years. He was a deeply committed Irish Republican and his death will be mourned by republicans far beyond Tyrone.

“The Doris family are a well known and respected republican family and have played a significant role in the republican struggle for many years.

“Brendan’s daughter Michelle was elected to Dungannon Council at the last election when Brendan decided not to seek re-election and his brother Paul has been a leading figure in NORAID in the United States for many years.

“On behalf of Sinn Féin and republicans across the island I would extend our sympathy to the Doris family at this difficult time. Brendan‘s death is a tragic loss to his family and to the wider republican struggle.” ENDS
