Crossakiel friends mourn Bob Crow

The late Bob Crow.

Labour TD, Dominic Hannigan, has expressed his sadness at the passing of Bob Crow who was General Secretary of the National Union of Rail, Maritime and Transport Workers (RMT) in the UK.

Speaking after he learned the news, Hannigan said: “As an ex-employee of British Rail I would have worked closely with his colleagues in the RMT and would have been very aware of his work and the high esteem he was held in by the industry.

“Bob Crow was a great supporter of the Irish trade union movement. At a local level in Meath he was extremely supportive of the annual Jim Connell Festival which takes place in Kells. He was always a spirited speaker about the power of the trade union movement and its ability to make a difference for its members.

“The trade union movement in the UK has lost an influential voice today. I want to pass on my condolences to his family and the members of the RMT.”
