Tribute paid to Irish nurse killed in Tunisia shooting

  • 1 Comment

The Irish Nurses and Midwives Organisation has opened a book of condolence for Lorna Carty, a nurse who died in the terrorist attack in Tunisia on Friday.

Ms Carty, from Robinstown in County Meath, was described by the INMO as a “loyal and longstanding member”, who it said had been “tragically and needlessly” killed in the shootings on the beach at Sousse.

Ms Carty, who was in her 50s, worked in primary care and is listed as one of the nurses at the Bedford Medical Centre on Convent Road in Navan.

She is believed to have been on holiday with her husband, Declan, who was recovering from heart surgery and who was not at the beach when the attack occurred.

As a mark of respect, the INMO said it had opened an online book of condolence for its members to express their sympathy to Ms Carty’s husband, children and wider family.

“The INMO wishes, again, to express our deepest sympathies to the family and friends, of Ms Carty, in view of this terrible and tragic loss,” it said in a statement issued today.

“The organisation also wishes to extend its deepest sympathy to all of our members, in our Meath Branch, many of whom knew Ms Carty through her work and membership,” it added.
