Dublin opens Book of Condolence for victims of Charlie Hebdo killings

Dublin City Council has announced that the City of Dublin will open a Book of Condolence for the victims of the Charlie Hebdo attack in Paris.

The public will be able to sign the Book of Condolence at The Mansion House, Dawson St. as follows:

  • 3p.m. - 6p.m. Friday, January 9th
  • 10a.m. – 5p.m. Saturday, January 10th
  • 10a.m. – 5p.m. Monday, January 12th

The decision to open a Book of Condolence is an initiative of the city’s Lord Mayor Christy Burke as a mark of sympathy for the victims of the tragedy and in recognition of Dublin’s ties to France and the French people.

Lord Mayor Burke says “I am opening a Book of Condolence to allow the people of Dublin to express their sympathies to the families, friends and colleagues of those killed in this terrible tragedy. It is also a mark of solidarity with the many French people living in Dublin. I will present the Book of Condolence to the French Ambassador on behalf of the city of Dublin”.

Books of Condolence are also open at the French Embassy in Dublin and the French Alliance Offices in Dublin and Limerick.
