McGrath: Devastating weekend for the community of Co. Down
Mr McGrath commented:
“I have been deeply saddened to hear of the deaths of three young people from the County Down area this past weekend – Ruth Maguire, Marty Patterson and Shane McAnallen.
"In a time when many people were celebrating a national holiday, three families are mourning the death of their loved ones. The pain of their passing has been felt so acutely by the whole community - in particular Bryansford GAA - of which they were all proud members.
"In the days, months and years ahead I have no doubt the strong and caring community of South Down will rally behind these families as they come to terms with their grief. These three young lives will be remembered and their memory will be cherished in the hearts and minds of those whose lives they touched. May they rest in peace.”
