NEWRY, MOURNE AND DOWN DISTRICT COUNCIL OPENS BOOKS OF CONDOLENCE FOR PARIS
People in Newry, Mourne and Down District can express their condolences for the many lives lost in the Paris terrorist attacks on Friday 13 November 2015 by signing a book of condolence.
The Books of Condolence are located at the Council’s Downpatrick Office, Downshire Civic Centre, Ardglass Road; Newry Office, Monaghan Row; Down Arts Centre, Downpatrick; and Newry Town Hall. The books will be available for signing during opening hours.
On Monday 16 November, Newry, Mourne and Down District Council Chairperson, Councillor Naomi Bailie was first to sign the book and said, "The opening of these Books of Condolence will allow the good people of our region to send their solidarity and best wishes to the people of Paris. I offer my condolences to the French people and the family and friends of all those who have lost their lives. I also ask that people do not forget all the many other injustices which occur across the world on a daily basis, and often go unreported. People persecuted in Lebanon, Palestine and Kenya are also in our thoughts and prayers. Ireland has a role to play in working to achieve a peaceful resolution in war-torn countries.”Back
