The Rev. Billy Davison, President of the Methodist Church in Ireland, condemns the brutal murder of Lyra McKee and offers his sympathy to her family and loved ones.

Journalism is so essential to society as it highlights not only stories of interest but also shines a light on
many things of which the general public would otherwise be unaware off.

This murder comes to a city which has had more than its share of such killings in the past and brings into
stark contrast the relative peace which most young people have enjoyed since the signing of the Good Friday Agreement.
