Ulster Unionist MP for Fermanagh & South Tyrone Tom Elliott has said that he is deeply saddened at the death of The Earl of Erne, Henry George Victor John Crichton.
Mr Elliott said:
“It was a pleasure to know the Earl of Erne, who was a generous individual with his time and community support. As Lord Lieutenant of Fermanagh from 1986 - 2012 he gave of his time to attend and support many events throughout the County and further afield.
“The Earl who lived on the Crom Estate in Fermanagh, managed the Estate and Castle as a home, but also in recent years in partnership with others progressed the development of the Estate, including the West Wing as an area that was a major tourist attraction and hosted many events.
“My thoughts are with his wife and family at this time – Fermanagh has lost an honourable citizen and true friend.”
