Ronan Kerr: Book of Condolence

Constable Ronan Kerr was killed in Omagh when a device blew up under his vehicle as he left to go to work.

As others were celebrating Mother’s Day, his grieving mum Nuala paid a heartfelt tribute to her 25-year-old son.

“He was a wonderful son and brother, always had a smile and a helping hand for everyone,” she said.

“It's a sad day for our community. Ronan was a valued member and he had so much to offer.

“This is at a time when we are striving for a neutral police force for the good of our country, and I urge all Catholic members not to be deterred.

“We all need to stand up and be counted and to strive for equality. We don't want to go back into the dark days again of fear and terror.”
