MAYOR Francis Foley has opened an online book of condolence to afford Limerick's citizens the chance to extend their sympathies on the passing of the British queen.

It's open from today for one week, with all messages of sympathy printed out and forwarded to the British royal family, who are in mourning following the passing of the monarch, aged 96, last night.
