Limerick council opens book of condolence for Buncrana tragedy

The scene of the fatal accident at the pier in Buncrana

AN online book of condolence has been opened by Limerick City and County Council in memory of the victims of the Buncrana drowning tragedy.

Five members of one extended family were killed on Sunday when their car slid off a pier slipway into Lough Swilly. 

A baby girl was rescued from the car, with the assistance of a bystander. The baby is currently in a stable condition at Letterkenny General Hospital.

Gardai are treating the matter as a tragic accident.

Members of the public can sign the book here.

Customer Services Staff will facilitate members of the public who also wish to sign the book in the Council’s offices in Merchant's Quay or Dooradoyle, a spokesperson said.
