Fermanagh and Omagh District Council has opened an online Book of Condolence in memory of the late Lord David Trimble who died earlier this week.

The digital Book of Condolence is open from today, Thursday 28 July 2022, and will remain open until 5pm on 12 August 2022.

Councillor Barry McElduff, Chair of Fermanagh and Omagh District Council, said: “Lord David Trimble was an influential and courageous political leader in our recent political history.

He will be remembered, not least, for the instrumental role he played in the Good Friday Agreement and for being the first person to take on the role of First Minister in the Executive which was subsequently established as Stormont.

The opening of the Book of Condolence will afford the people of the District the opportunity to convey their condolences to his family.

In opening the Book of Condolence, I am pleased to be joined by Council Vice Chair, Allan Rainey MBE, a Member of the Ulster Unionist Party, a Party colleague of David Trimble’s.

On behalf of the Council, I would like to extend my deepest sympathy to David’s wife, Daphne, his four children, Richard, Victoria, Nicholas and Sarah and the wider family circle.”

The digital Book of Condolence is available to sign on the Council website at
