Alastair Hamilton, Chief Executive of Invest Northern Ireland expresses his condolences at passing of Lord Bannside.

Sep 12, 2014

Alastair said: “It is with great sadness that we learn of the passing of Lord Bannside.

“Over many years and decades, as a constituency politician, MP, MEP and ultimately as First Minister of Northern Ireland, he was a great supporter of the business community.

“I had the great privilege of working with Lord Bannside over several years and today we all feel the benefit of his unstinting work as First Minister, both at home and abroad, adding his passionate, personal appeal to help secure new business for Northern Ireland.

“Lord Bannside will be sadly missed and I would extend my most sincere sympathy to Baroness Paisley, and the Paisley Family at this difficult time.”
