McGrath: Shock at Castlewellan tragic death

SDLP South Down MLA Colin McGrath has said that an entire community is in shock following news of the death of a teenage boy in tragic circumstances in Castlewellan.

He said:  

 “People in this community are just shocked by what we’re hearing today. Although this death happened on Christmas Eve, details of the circumstances are only now emerging.   

 “My thoughts and those of my colleagues are with the young man, Conor Robb, who lost his life and his family and friends at this incredibly difficult time.  

 “I know that the local community will rally around their family and friends and offer whatever support we can to help them as they begin to mourn their loss.  

 “I understand that an 18-year-old man has been arrested on suspicion of murder and has been released on bail pending further enquiries. 

 “This is a difficult time for family and friends and wider community - the family will need space to deal with their loss. They are in my thoughts and prayers.“
