Leader of the Fianna Fáil party Micheál Martin has reacted to the Nice tragedy.

“My thoughts and prayers are with the families and friends of the people who were killed last night in Nice. It was a horrendous and callous attack on people’s freedom as they celebrated Bastille Day. It
is shocking that the people of France have yet again been visited by such horrific tragedy.

“We must all stand together in total condemnation of this tragedy.”

The Fianna Fáil Leader will visit the French Embassy this morning to express his and his party’s support.
