July 25, 2022

On behalf of Lisburn & Castlereagh City Council, the Mayor Cllr Scott Carson has today conveyed his deepest sympathies following the passing of Lord Trimble.

Mayor Carson said: “Today we join with the people of Northern Ireland and beyond to mourn the loss of Lord Trimble. He will be remembered as an important political leader, for his strength of character, resilience and determination as First Minister during some very challenging times in Northern Ireland’s history.

"As Baron Trimble of Lisnagarvey, he continued to champion Northern Ireland in Westminster as a Member of the House of Lords. His significant contributions to politics are evident not only in Northern Ireland but across the UK.

"My thoughts and prayers are with our friend and colleague, Cllr Hon. Nicholas Trimble, his mother Lady Trimble and their wider family circle at this very sad time."
