Congress General Secretary Patricia King has extended the condolences and sympathies of the Irish trade union movement to the families and communities of those injured and killed in last night’s attacks in Paris. “I want to extend our very deepest sympathies to all those affected by last night’s brutal and callous attacks on innocent civilians in Paris and on French society itself. “These cruel and senseless murders serve no civilised cause and are an offence against our common humanity, regardless of creed or colour. "Only mutual respect, solidarity and toleration offer a way forward, not the path of violence. “Our thoughts today are with the people of France and with those affected by this outrage against civil society and human decency,” Ms King said.
