‘Community heartbroken at tragic death of Caolán Devlin’ – O’Neill

Sinn Féin Leas-Uachtarán Michelle O’Neill has said the community is heartbroken to learn of the death of Caolán Devlin in a fatal collision on the A5 on Tuesday night.

Michelle O’Neill said:

“I am deeply shocked and saddened to learn that Caolán Devlin tragically died in a collision on the A5 on Tuesday night.

“Firstly, I want to extend my heartfelt condolences to Caolán’s parents Margaret and Gerard, his brother Niall, and the entire Devlin and Cullen families as they come to terms with this unimaginable loss today.

“An entire community is heartbroken today. We will all gather around to support Caolán’s family and friends at this very sad and difficult time. 

“I want to thank the emergency services who attended the scene and for all their efforts, and I would urge people to assist a request from the police for dash cam footage to be brought forward.

“Another family has been left in mourning today after losing a loved one on the A5. This is a sad reminder of why we need to urgently upgrade this dangerous road to save lives now. 

“I am appealing directly to those who are opposed to this road to withdraw their objections. There can be no more delay in building the A5.

“Caolán was a much-loved young man with a bright future ahead of him, well known and liked, particularly within the local GAA community, and he will be greatly missed by all who knew him. Ar dheis Dé go raibh a anam.”
