Council opens online book of condolences in memory of late Lord David Trimble – Fermanagh & Omagh District Council


Fermanagh and Omagh District Council has opened an online book of condolences in memory of the late Lord David Trimble who died earlier this week.

The digital condolence book is open from today, Thursday July 28, 2022, and will remain open until 5:00 p.m. on August 12, 2022.

Councilor Barry McElduff, Chairman of Fermanagh and Omagh District Council, said: “Lord David Trimble was an influential and courageous political leader in our recent political history.

He will be remembered, among other things, for his instrumental role in the Good Friday Agreement and for being the first person to assume the role of Prime Minister in the executive branch that was later established under the name of Stormont.

The opening of the condolence book will be an opportunity for the inhabitants of the District to convey their condolences to his family.

As I open the book of condolences, I am happy to be joined by Deputy Chairman of the Council, Allan Rainey MBE, member of the Ulster Unionist Party, a colleague from David Trimble’s party.

On behalf of the Council, I would like to express my deepest condolences to David’s wife, Daphne, his four children, Richard, Victoria, Nicholas and Sarah, and the extended family circle.

The digital book of condolences can be signed on the Council’s website at
