John Brady – 2022 Comments on the Havana Hotel Blast

The comments made by John Brady, the TD for Wicklow, on 9 May 2022.

On behalf of both myself and Sinn Féin, I would like to express my deepest sympathies to the families of the victims of the Havana hotel blast.

There are close ties and affinity between the Cuban and Irish people, developed over many years.

I know that there are many here in Ireland who will be thinking of the people of Havana at the moment.

The blast, a result of a tragic accident, has ripped apart the Saratoga Hotel, which is no doubt familiar to many who have visited the city in the past.

Our thoughts at this time are with families of the victims, and the survivors who have been seriously injured. We can only hope that there will be more survivors discovered as the rescue operation continues.
