Statement by Ballymoney TUV Councillor Jonathan McAuley

Ballymoney TUV Councillor Jonathan McAuley has expressed his profound sadness following two road traffic deaths in the area this week:

Councillor McAuley said: “I was deeply shocked and saddened to hear of the tragic road accidents the last couple of days which occurred in Dunloy and Aghadowey.

“My thoughts and prayers are with the family of Alan Doherty, who tragically died in the early hours of Wednesday morning, December 27, near his home in Dunloy, I would also extend my deepest sympathy to the family of Lydia Ross, from outside Ballymoney who was only 21 years-old when she was involved in a tragic collision with a blue Peugeot 207 around 10.15pm, last night, Thursday 28th December, on the Curragh Road, Aghadowey.

“I would appeal to anyone who may have any information or dash cam footage from around either area to contact Police on 101.

“I would also appeal for anyone out and about in the inclement weather we are experiencing to take extra care on the roads, especially this time of year,” concluded Councillor McAuley.
