Written answers (Question to Justice)

My thoughts, and the thoughts of the Government, are with the family and friends of the person concerned at this extremely distressing time, and as they contend with such a profound and tragic loss. While matters relating to the interests of Irish citizens in other jurisdictions are more properly dealt with by my colleague, the Minister for Foreign Affairs, I understand that this case is a matter for the Police Service of Northern Ireland and an investigation is underway. I also understand that a Coroner's investigation is also ongoing. As such, it would not be appropriate to comment further at this time.
