The Mayor of Causeway Coast and Glens Borough Council is opening Books of Condolence to remember those killed in the Manchester suicide attack.

The shocking incident unfolded on Monday night following a concert at Manchester Arena. Children and teenagers were among those caught up in the atrocity.

The Mayor, Alderman Maura Hickey, said: “It’s devastating to think that so many innocent people have been affected by the carnage of this attack.

As bystanders we watched the scenes of devastation unfold on our television screens, and we can only imagine the terror felt by those at the scene.

The senseless death of young people has a particularly poignant effect on us all. “At times like this we search for hope, and the community spirit which came to the fore in the aftermath of this attack is evidence that it exists.

I want to commend all of those people who have reached out to help during these dark times. “My sincere sympathies, and those of the people of the Borough, are with all of those affected.” Books of Condolence will be available for members of the public to sign at Ballymoney Town Hall, Coleraine Town Hall, Roe Valley Arts and Cultural Centre in Limavady and Sheskburn House in Ballycastle from 9.30am tomorrow (Wednesday 24th May).

The books will close at 4.30pm on Tuesday 30th May. Please note the buildings will be closed on Monday 29th May due to the Bank Holiday.
