Book of Condolence for Nelson Mandela in Cavan Courthouse

Cavan County Council have opened a book of condolence for the late Nelson Mandela. Cavan County library has also paid tribute to the South African hero. On their website they state "We pay tribute to the extraordinary person that was Nelson Mandela, who passed away on Thursday, December 5 aged 95. Millions around the world have joined in the outpouring of sorrow for the anti-Apartheid hero. Ar dheis Dé go raibh a anam dilis."

The Anglo-Celt spoke to Kurt Clements, a South African man who moved to Ireland in 2000 and is based in Ballyjamesduff. Speaking of the news he said "It was expected but it still came as a shock, I stayed up until 1am just watching the footage of all that he's achieved. It has affected all South Africans in many ways, I saw many people in South Africa on the news dancing and singing outside of his home, and I can relate to that because of all that he has done, his life is a celebration and people are honoring that.

 

The book of condolence opens at 1pm today in Cavan Courthouse.
