A book of condolence has been opened at Enniskillen Townhall in memory of former Deputy First Minister Martin McGuinness.

Opened by Fermanagh and Omagh District Council (FODC) this morning, the book of condolence will be available for signing by the public from Monday to Friday, 9am-5pm, and will remain open until Friday, April 14.


Chairman of FODC, Cllr Mary Garrity, was the first to sign the book this morning. 

She said: “The death of Martin McGuinness has invoked some mixed emotions in our community.

“Martin had a remarkable political journey that resulted in what I believe was a genuine desire for peace and reconciliation in this country.

“I pray for Martin, his family, for all victims and survivors of our past troubled years. I hope that the lessons we have all learnt are not in vain and that lasting peace will be his legacy.”

A book of condolence has also been opened by FODC at The Grange in Omagh.
