Lord Trimble was a man of great integrity and honour who helped secure the peace deal which ended the worst of the Troubles in NI. Tonight we remember his legacy and invaluable contribution to securing the Good Friday Agreement. My thoughts are with his friends and loved ones.

Very sad to hear the news that Lord Trimble has passed away after a short illness. I was fortunate enough to travel with him to Israel where I got to know a truly dedicated public servant and statesman who was the most interesting and entertaining company. His legacy will endure.

Very sad to hear of the passing of Lord Trimble. Along with many other posts, he also had the privilege of serving as the Member of Parliament for Upper Bann. To his wife and children who will feel this loss most personally I assure them of my prayers in their time of loss.
