“I wish Margaret’s husband Pat, who was also involved in the collision late last night, a speedy recovery from his injuries.

“My deepest thoughts and prayers will be with her husband Pat, their son Aidan and daughters Bronagh, Julie and Laura at this very sad, difficult and truly heart-breaking time. Sometimes there are just no words. May Margaret rest in peace.”
