The Derry City and Strabane District Council building will be lit up in red tonight in memory of Ryan McBride and the Buncrana Pier tragedy victims.
Foyle MLA Elisha McCallion made the announcement, saying that the council will memorialise the Derry City Captain, who lost his life last night. This memorial will also mark the first anniversary of the death of Sean McGrotty, his sons Mark (12) and Evan (8), the boys’ grandmother Ruth Daniels and her teenage daughter Jodie-Lee.
"To mark the first anniversary of the Bunranna pier tragedy and also remember another son of the city who passed away yesterday I have got agreement from council to light up the council building red tonight.
"We will always remember you. Rest in peace," said Elisha, in a tribute on Facebook.
