Limerick City and County Council has opened separate Books of Condolences in memory of the victims of the Carrickmines 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 the Council offices in Dooradoyle and at Merchants Quay from 9.30am to 4.30pm each weekday up to and including Friday, October 23.

Members of the public can also sign Online Books of Condolences at limerick.ie/council.

The Books were officially opened this morning by Councillor Liam Galvin, Mayor of the City and County of Limerick.

Commenting on the Carrickmines fire in which five adults and five children died, Mayor Galvin said: “This unimaginable tragedy has shocked the entire country and my thoughts are with those who have lost family members.”

The Mayor described the killing of Garda Anthony Golden as “a repugnant crime” and “an attack on the brave men and women of An Garda Síochána who dedicate their lives to the protection of others.”
