Message of condolences from An Taoiseach, Enda Kenny T. D. to President Obama

Dear President Obama

On behalf of the people and Government of Ireland, I offer our sincere condolences on the shocking loss of life in Orlando today.

Our thoughts and prayers are with the people of the United States, the community in Orlando and the LGBT community, and above all with the families and loved ones of those so senselessly killed and injured.

Once again we have witnessed the horror of young people being attacked as they enjoy themselves in their own community. Words cannot capture the shock and revulsion felt in Ireland, and around the world, at this outrage.

Ireland stands with the United States in this time of immeasurable grief.

Yours sincerely

Enda Kenny T.D.

Taoiseach
