Chamber President, Kristine Reynolds on behalf of the Chamber Council extends her sympathy to all in Creeslough.
“As events unfolded on Friday, Letterkenny Chamber staff and Chamber Council, like the rest of the Donegal community, were in shock and disbelief. A normal Friday afternoon that became so tragic and will be forever remembered. As the details emerged over the weekend of the confirmed deaths of 10 people from Creeslough we, like everyone, were heartbroken for all the families affected.
We offer our sincere condolences to the families and friends of those who have lost their lives in this tragic event. We are thinking of the whole community of Creeslough and the surrounding area as they come to terms with this huge loss.
We also at this time want to pay tribute to the effort and dedication of all the services personnel involved in the rescue and recovery operation and acknowledge the role played by the HSE, Gardai, Fire Service among others.
We are all struggling to come to terms with the events of last Friday so we can only imagine what the families are going through at this sad time. We are holding everyone in our thoughts and hearts.”
