Fianna Fáil TD for Roscommon/Galway Eugene Murphy has expressed his condolences on the death of Northern Ireland’s former Deputy First Minister Martin McGuinness.
Commenting yesterday Eugene Murphy said Martin McGuinness will be deeply mourned not only by his family, friends and colleagues in Sinn Féin, but also in communities throughout Ireland and in particular in his beloved Derry.
“Martin was an influential and transformative individual who came to recognise that the best route to peace was not through armed struggle but through dialogue, compromise, respect and reconciliation. He has left an indelible mark and the relative peace that is now enjoyed by all people in Ireland is due in part to his commitment and determination to the see the full realisation of the peace process.
“I want to extend my deepest sympathies to express my sincere condolences to Martin’s family, friends and also his colleagues in Sinn Féin. Ar dheis Dé go raibh a anam,” concluded Deputy Murphy.
