Written answers (Question to Foreign)

I would like to take this opportunity to extend my heartfelt condolences and those of the Government to the family and friends of Noah Donohoe, on their most tragic loss. Our thoughts especially are with Noah’s mother Fiona.

The case of Noah’s death is matter for the Police Service of Northern Ireland and an investigation is underway. There has been a renewed appeal for witnesses, and we would encourage anyone who may have any information to contact the PSNI. I understand that a Coroner's investigation is also ongoing. As such, it would not be appropriate to comment further at this time.
