Mayor of South Dublin County, Mark Ward said: “One of the best things about being Mayor of South Dublin County is that I have got to meet many different communities in our county.

“I have met and being invited to events hosted by the Muslim community and have always had a very warm welcome and made feel at home.

“I have also attended other events that our Muslim friends were involved in.

“The Muslim community in Ireland are an integral part of our community and I want to send them my solidarity after the horrific attack on the mosques in New Zealand.”

He added: “I want to extend my deepest sympathies to the people of Christchurch and as a nation we must stand together against bigotry, racism and hatred.”

According to South Dublin County Council, the books of condolence are open to the public until this Friday, March 22, at 4.30pm.
