Condolences on death from Protestants

The Irish Times—10 July 2001

The mother of the murdered Antrim man, Mr Ciaran Cummings, said yesterday her family had been inundated with messages of condolence from the Republic and from the Protestant community in the North.

Speaking on RTE, Ms Kate Cummings said the community in Antrim had been "fantastic" following the death of her 19-year-old son last Wednesday.

The only reason her son had been killed was that he was a Catholic, she said. "I hope no other mother and father have to go through this."
