Deputy First Minister, Martin McGuinness MLA has expressed heartfelt condolences to the wife and family, of well-known Derry City footballer Mark Farren.
“It was with great sadness that I learned of the death of Derry City footballing legend Mark Farren.
“Mark fought a courageous battle with his illness, bravely supported by his wifeTerri-Louise and their families.
“Mark will be remembered by Derry City supporters and the people of Derry for his exploits on the football pitch, but he was much more than a footballer. He was also a gentleman and loyal friend. His loss will be most acutely felt by his wife Terri-Louise, and the wider Farren and Holmes families.
I extend my sincerest and heartfelt condolences and those of my Party to them at this very sad time.
