Clare County Council today (Monday) opened two separate Books of Condolences in memory of the victims of the Carrickmines, Dublin fire on Saturday and Garda Anthony Golden, who was killed in the line of duty in Omeath, County Louth, on Sunday.
Members of the public are being invited to sign the books, which will remain at Áras Contae an Chláir, New Road, Ennis from 9.00am to 5.00pm each weekday up to and including Friday, October 23.
The Books were officially opened this morning by Cathaoirleach of Clare County Council, James Breen.
“Both incidents have shocked the entire country and the thoughts of all elected members and the staff of Clare County Council are with the families and friends of those who lost their lives so tragically, as well as those who were injured at the weekend. I would urge people to sign the Books of Condolences in solidarity with those affected,” said Councillor Breen.
