The Lord Mayor of Belfast Alderman Frank McCoubrey has opened an online book of condolence in memory of Noah Donohoe.

“People from across the city have been deeply affected by the loss of young Noah, and their thoughts and prayers are with Noah’s mother and wider family circle at this devastating time,” said Alderman McCoubrey.

“This past week, the community – particularly the north Belfast community – was united in one purpose, assisting the PSNI and Community Rescue teams in the search for Noah; and when the heartbreaking news came through on Saturday, we all had heavy hearts.

“It is my hope that the outpouring of support from across the city and beyond will bring some comfort to his family at this difficult time.”

Anyone who wishes to sign the book should go to www.belfastcity.gov.uk/condolences. It will remain open until 12noon on Wednesday 8 July.

Speaking on Saturday, Alderman McCoubrey said: “I was so deeply saddened to hear the news about Noah, and I know that I speak for the entire city in expressing condolences to Noah’s family and friends. It is incredibly sad to see the loss of such a gifted and well-loved young man, and as a father myself, I cannot begin to imagine the anguish and pain at the loss of a child.

“I would like to pay tribute to the community of north Belfast who have come together, helping in the search for Noah, and also to the PSNI and Community Rescue Service who have worked tirelessly in recent days. The tragic loss of Noah will be deeply felt by the entire community.”
