Northern Ireland Peace Process, Tánaiste Eamon Gilmore, Press Releases, Northern Ireland, 2013

The Tánaiste and Minster for Foreign Affairs and Trade, Eamon Gilmore T.D.  has condemned the murder of two men in Northern Ireland. 

Speaking in Dublin, he said:

“I want to offer sincere sympathies to the families of the two men who have been murdered in North Belfast and in Derry. I utterly condemn these vicious, brutal and cowardly murders.

“The people who claim responsibility for this have no mandate and their actions lead nowhere. The people of Belfast and Derry, and indeed people all over Ireland, have moved on. There is no justification for such crimes against the community.

“I would call on anyone who has information about these murders to give their full support to the PSNI in finding those who are responsible.

“The Garda Siochána will continue to work closely and in partnership with the PSNI.”
