McCallion sends condolences following Malin Head tragedy

Sinn Féin MP Elisha McCallion has expressed condolences following the death of a 16-year old boy and a man in his 60s in a boating tragedy in Donegal.

The Foyle MP said:

“The city is shocked and saddened to learn that a 16-year-old boy from Derry has died along with a man in his 60s in this tragedy at Malin.

“This is terrible news for any family to receive and my thoughts are with them at this difficult time.

“It must also have been a traumatic experience for those holidaymakers who saw the boat get into difficulty and raised the alarm.

“I want to commend the action of the lifeboat crews involved in the rescue effort and hope those injured can make a full recovery.

“Our sympathies and condolences go to those bereaved by this tragedy and I’m sure the communities in both Derry and Donegal will support them in the time ahead.” Ends/Críoch
