Derry City Football Club wishes to extend our deepest condolences to the partner, family and friends of Lyra McKee following her tragic and untimely death last night.
Lyra had become a part of the Brandywell community and her death has stunned an entire city with which this club has a deep association.
As a club, the media are part of our wider family and we recognise the work Lyra was involved in, and in which she ultimately lost her young life.
Tonight’s game against Shamrock Rovers will go ahead as planned, although it will do so against a backdrop of deep sadness.
May her gentle soul rest in peace.
