SOUTH Antrim MLA, Pam Lewis, has welcomed the dedication of a memorial stone to commemorate Sappers Mark Quinsey and Patrick Azimkar, who were murdered in Antrim three years ago on Wednesday, March 7.

Pam said: “Wednesday was an emotional day as Antrim remembered the horrendous murders of Sappers Mark Quinsey and Patrick Azimkar outside of their barracks three years ago. I know that all who gathered in the church were moved by the contribution of the families at this memorial service and I admire the grace shown by them in the face of such terrible loss.

“This memorial service, just like the gathering at Chapel Corner in the aftermath of the murders, is a further demonstration that the good people of Antrim, both protestant and catholic, will stand shoulder to shoulder against the actions of cowardly murderers who have nothing to offer our society but violence and empty rhetoric. I would urge the PSNI to do all in their power to ensure that all those responsible for this atrocity are brought to justice.

“Nothing can or will fill the empty space that has been left in the lives of the families of Mark and Patrick, but I hope that they can take some comfort from the fact that there are many people in Antrim thinking of them and remembering their loss three years on.” she added.
