David Black Murdered – Get the perpetrator(s)

Dublin’s Lord Mayor Naoise Ó Muirí today telephoned Gavin Robinson,
the Lord Mayor of Belfast to discuss the murder of David Black, prison
officer who was shot this morning in Co. Antrim. He asked Mr Robinson
to pass on his sympathies to the Black family.

Speaking about the incident the Lord Mayor said “I have today spoken
with the Lord Mayor of Belfast and offered the support and sympathy of
the people of Dublin at this tragic time.

Over the last number of years we have made great progress in moving
beyond this type of brutality; this behaviour belongs firmly in the
past on this island and we will not tolerate a return to such

The perpetrators must be brought to justice and I call upon anyone
with relevant information to come forward to an Garda Siochana or the
PSNI as appropriate.”
