Mayor opens Book of Condolence for Luke and Grace McSweeney, Zoey Coffey and Nicole Murphy



Mayor of Waterford City and County, Cllr. Joe Conway has opened a book of condolence for the four young people who tragically lost their lives in a road traffic accident in County Tipperary.

“This tragedy has affected everyone, and we are devastated by the loss of Luke and Grace McSweeney, Zoey Coffey and Nicole Murphy, who had their whole lives ahead of them.

“What should have been a night to celebrate their Leaving Cert results and mark the beginning of an exciting new chapter in their lives, ended in unimaginable tragedy.  The sense of shock and numbness has reverberated through the whole country, and we are united in grief with the people of Clonmel and County Tipperary.

“To their families, classmates, friends, school community, and to the whole community, I, on behalf of the people of Waterford City and County extend my deepest sympathies.”
