Statement by President Higgins on the attacks in Sri Lanka.

Date: Sun 21st Apr, 2019 | 11:02

As President of Ireland I am sure that people in Ireland will have heard with great concern of the heavy loss of life that has happened at places of worship in Sri Lanka, at a time of religious significance.

The right to the freedom of worship is a fundamental right.

To the families of those who died and those who have been injured I send the sympathies and solidarity of the people of Ireland.
