Mayor of Derry City and Strabane District Council, Councillor Sandra Duffy, has paid tribute to Queen Elizabeth II following the news of her passing today.

Councillor Sandra Duffy said: "It is with deep regret that I have learned of the passing of Queen Elizabeth II on Thursday.

"I wish to send my sincerest condolences and sympathies to the Queen's family at this sad and difficult time.

"My thoughts and sympathies are with the many people in our city and district, especially people from the unionist tradition and the people of Britain, who will feel her loss deeply.

"I would like to also acknowledge the contribution Queen Elizabeth made towards building the peace here, reaching out the hand and helping to advance reconciliation and build relationships. I am hopeful that this will be a lasting legacy.

 "I will open a Book of Condolence at the Guildhall to allow people to offer their sympathies to her family at this time."

The Book of Condolences will be available for the public to sign in the Guildhall’s Main Hall and at the Alley Theatre in Strabane from 3.30pm

 It will open thereafter from 9am to 5pm daily. For those who cannot sign the book in person they can sign it online via the Council’s website at: Book of Condolence.
