Book of Condolence Captain Sir Tom Moore

On behalf of Ards and North Down Borough Council, The Mayor of Ards and North Down would like to extend deepest condolences on the passing of Captain Sir Tom Moore. He was a true hero in every sense of the word, and an inspiration to many in the darkest of times.

As a young man, he joined millions of others to fight for our freedom, displaying true courage and determination. Even in his 100th year, those attributes were clear to see as he garnered the support of millions of people in his quest to raise money for the NHS.

He has been a real beacon of light and hope during the pandemic. His actions helped to bring the nation together and helped more people than we will ever know.

Sir Tom leaves behind a legacy of courage and hope. The people of Ards and North Down are immensely proud of everything he achieved and on behalf of our citizens, I wish to offer my condolences to his family and friends at this difficult time.

 The Book will be closed to new comments on 11 February 2021.
