Castlebar Chamber of Commerce is opening a book of condolences this morning (Monday ) at 10am in memory of the people who lost their lives during the three days of terror attacks in France last week.

The book is available to sign in the Chamber office at the Town Hall on Linenhall Street.

Michael Baynes, Castlebar Chamber, said Castlebar, and all of Mayo, has a strong link with France dating back to 1798 when General Humbert landed in Kilcummin to help the Irish people in their struggle at that time.

“We now want to show solidarity with the people of France in their dark hours,” said Mr Baynes.

“Because of Humbert’s connection with the Town Hall (Linenhall ), we feel this is an appropriate place to have the book available.

“We encourage all to come,” he added.

The Chamber office is open from 10am to 2pm.
