The local community is in mourning today after it emerged that a young Newry man has lost his life in America.

Paul Lambert, aged in his 30’s, is from the Courtney Hill area of Newry.

It is believed that he died as a result of a road accident in San Francisco where he was living and working.

According to reports, Paul is a first cousin of popular Newry man Kevin Bell, who tragically died in a road accident last year in New York.

Reacting to the news, local SDLP MLA Dominic Bradley spoke to Newry Times of his shock. “First of all my thoughts are with Paul’s father, mother and extended family.

“This is absolutely devastating news for them after the death of his cousin Kevin Bell. I know the community will rally around the family just as they did when Kevin passed away.

Bradley added, “On behalf of the local community I send my deepest sympathy to the family and I ask people to keep them in their prayers.”
