Statement by Tánaiste on the death of Lyra McKee

                                                                       

"The news from Derry is shocking and tragic. Our thoughts are with the family and friends of Lyra McKee today. I call on anyone with information to come forward to the PSNI.

 

There is no justification for this tragic loss of life and I call on those intent on violence and disturbances to stop.

 

As we mark the 21st anniversary of the Good Friday Agreement, we are reminded that the vast majority of people of this island voted overwhelmingly for peace and reconciliation and an end to violence. There can be no going back to those awful days. "

 

ENDs
