Ongoing Conflict in Gaza



At the July monthly meeting of Kildare County Council the Mayor of Kildare, Councillor Fiona O’Loughlin, held a minutes silence at the start of the meeting in commemoration of those who have lost their lives in Gaza.


Under Mayors business, following consultation with all group leaders, she also issued a statement condemning the loss of life in Gaza and supporting all measures for ceasefire. "We have all been haunted by the photographs of slain young children emerging from Gaza, and absolutely condemn the loss of life over the last few weeks."   She also said that “coming from the island of Ireland, that has had its own conflict, we could offer hope that peace is possible”.


As a mark of respect the Mayor also opened a book of condolence in Áras Chill Dara which is available for the public to sign  until Friday, 15 August 2014.
