Taoiseach Enda Kenny extends sympathy on the death of Adrian Ismay


The Taoiseach has extended his deepest sympathies to the family, friends and colleagues of Adrian Ismay, a Northern Ireland Prison Officer, who died today, and who was seriously injured in a bomb attack in Belfast earlier this month.

Speaking from Washington, the Taoiseach said: "My thoughts and prayers are first and foremost with Adrian Ismay's family for their loss and for their trauma in the wake of the bomb attack which caused Adrian such terrible injury. I have said repeatedly that such attacks can have no place in a civilised, inclusive society and we must continue to work at all levels to copperfasten a future for Northern Ireland that is committed to the democratic process and the rule of law and is free from violence and intimidation."
