Alliance Leader David Ford has paid tribute to former Coleraine Central Alliance Party Councillor Eamon O’Hara who passed away on Friday morning.
David Ford said: “I am sure I speak for everyone in the party in passing on my deepest condolences to Eamon’s family and friends, and in saying that he will be very sadly missed. Eamon was a very friendly and extremely popular figure in both the party and in Coleraine Borough Council.
“He was a dedicated campaigner for the community and was a committed Alliance activist who worked to help move Northern Ireland forward to a more peaceful future.
“Eamon was a very highly regarded and extremely hard working local representative and would always have gone that extra mile to help anyone. All our thoughts are with his family at this time of tragedy.
“The very large attendance at his funeral on Sunday showed the respect with which Eamon was held by so many people in his parish and a wide range of local groups and organisations across Coleraine.”
